Update: Breitbart reports that the attacker has died from his wounds. Both wounded police officers were reportedly women, and one of them is in the hospital with serious facial injuries.
I’ve been calling for machete control for quite a while now, and today it seems like Belgium really needs it.
This story is still breaking news, and information is sketchy. Even The Daily Mail doesn’t have much; there’s only one photo.
The “Allahu Akhbar” factor has already been acknowledged. Medical professionals now understand this phrase to be a cry for help from a mentally ill young person who has been marginalized and bullied after experiencing racism and discrimination at the hands of European society. I’m sure that’s what we’ll learn about the unfortunate youth who was mercilessly gunned down today by police in Charleroi:
Two Belgian police officers are wounded by a machete-wielding attacker who shouted Allahu Akbar before being shot
Two Belgian police officers have been injured by a man with a machete in Charleroi.
The attacker was shot and wounded.
Police in Charleroi tweeted: ‘Two police officers injured by machete in front of police station by someone shouting Allah Akbar (God is Great).
‘Individual was shot but is alive.’
A witness told local television RTL he heard gunshots at the scene and saw an ambulance.
The area has been sealed off.
