BRUSSELS, August 7. /TASS/. The terrorist organization Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack on policemen in the Belgian city of Charleroi, France Presse said on Sunday citing Amaq agency linked with Islamic State.
According to Amaq, the man who wounded two police officers by a machete was an Islamic State "soldier."
Belgium’s prosecutors said earlier on Sunday the attacker was identified as an Algerian national with previous criminal record. The man, 33, was not reported to have links with terrorists. No weapons or explosives were found in his backpack.
Two police officers were wounded by a man with a machete in Charleroi, the country’s RTFB broadcaster said on Saturday. Shouting Allahu Akhbar (God is great), the unidentified man injured two police officers with his machete in the city center. The attacker was later wounded and detained by the police, Charleroi’s police said.
