    The attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar" while hitting with a big machete at the face of a policewoman.

    Two policewomen were wounded with a machete on Saturday afternoon in the center of Charleroi by an individual shouting "Allahu Akbar," according to local police. The incident occurred near the Charleroi police station. The perpetrator was shot by a third policewoman who neutralized him.

    Details of the attack remain unclear. Reportedly, the man was alone. He introduced himself to the security checkpoint of the Charleroi police station. As the police attended to him, he pulled out a machete from his gym bag and dealt a blow to the face of the first policewoman.. He then turned to hit at at the second.

    One policewoman suffered deep wounds to her facel. She was taken to the hospital of Charleroi. Her colleague is only slightly affected. They are both out of danger. The author of the attack has succumbed to his injuries in hospital, police said.

    MACHETE ATTACK: VICTIMS ARE CORINNA AND HAKIMA; CHARLEROI POLICE IN SHOCK

    LaGazette.be
    http://www.lanouvellegazette.be/1639...e-de-charleroi

    Corinne and Hakima are the two victims of the author of the machete attack that took place in Charleroi this afternoon.
    Hakima Dhamna was wounded more severely than her colleague. She will have to undergo plastic surgery.
    They have both been taken to hospital, together with the perpetrator who died on the spot. He was mortally wounded in the chest and leg.

    His identity remains unclear. At 15h 58, the camera filmed the attacker who arrived at Check Point and attacked both policewomen present. A third policewoman, also present at the checkpoint but in the background, shot the attacker. Several shots were heard.

    Following the attacks of March 22, a checkpoint had indeed been set up in front of the police station to search any person who wishes to enter.

    Thank you for all your updates ZaZara you are much better at sourcing info than I am. It is very sad to have to keep regularly posting new threads about yet more pointless attacks by these imbeciles.

    CHARLEROI: THE FEDERAL PROSECUTOR INVESTIGATES


    RTBF.be
    http://www.rtbf.be/info/regions/deta...ete?id=9371323

    The two policewomen wounded on Saturday in Charleroi are being kept in an artificial coma because of the severity of their injuries.

    A meeting of the security services is held on Sunday morning at 10:30. hrs. After the assault where two policewomen were attacked in Charleroi, Prime Minister Charles Michel has returned from his vacation. He will reunite the different countries of the Security Service - State Security, police, military intelligence ... - and the responsible ministers, before traveling to Charleroi in the afternoon where he is expected to speak.

    The federal prosecutor, usually in charge of terrorism cases, has officially taken up the investigation, indicating that the investigation of the attack track is considered very seriously.

    "The first indications seem to point in that direction, but I want to be cautious enough since we are still busy, for now, to collect all the indications and information, the Prime Minister commented carefully. I will meet with the various security services. We will take stock of the situation, and we will certainly have, in the coming hours, more information."

    The prosecution will communicate this Sunday information regarding the identity of the perpetrator. They say that for now they continue to gather evidence in order to identify him.

    The OCAM, the Coordinating Body for Threat Analysis, maintained the level of the terrorist threat to 3 on a scale of 4 on Saturday. With respect to police officers, it is kept at 2 with continuing enhanced security measures for the police. [ The Police Union is unhappy with this, sinde the police is becoming more and more of a target ]

    Pressco Belgian PM:


    Security for police will be UP, PM announces additional security measures for police officers.

    The targeted police "have responded perfectly" when faced with the aggressor (shot), avoiding a drama of greater magnitude.

    FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION FOR POLICEWOMAN WHO WAS ATTACKED WITH MACHETE

    HLN.be
    http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/957/Binnenl...rankrijk.dhtml

    The man who wounded yesterday two female police officers with a machete in Charleroi would be an Algerian from France. This is reported by political journalist Martin Buxant and VTM journalist Nathalie Dyck today.

    "The prosecution does not want to give information at the moment," Dyck said. "As long as they are not one hundred percent sure of what they have discovered, they will not communicate it yet. We hear from several other sources that the perpetrator may be an Algerian who would have come to Belgium from France. He would be in his thirties. But that has not yet officially been confirmed."


    The two female victims are still in hospital in Charleroi. They are both stable. A police spokesman said today on VTM news that the woman who was hit with the machete in her face was doing badly. "A surgeon had to reconstruct her face. But the operation went well. Her colleague has lighter injuries, she was hit in the neck. She had surgery yesterday but was back in surgery today because a nerve in the face had been damaged."

    CHARLEROI: ALL NIGHT INVESTIGATION INTO SURROUNDINGS OF PERPETRATOR


    RTBF.be
    http://www.rtbf.be/info/regions/deta...uit?id=9371323


    The investigation into the assault on two policewomen in Charleroi is progressing.

    The federal prosecutor, usually in charge of terrorism cases, took up the investigation and does already know more about the perpetrator.

    The man is of Algerian nationality and was residing illegally in Belgium. He was carrying no identification, not even cell phone at the time, which means he did not want to leave traces. His home was searched and his circle of acquaintances was questioned throughout the night from Saturday to Sunday.



    BBM


    Not even a cell phone? This is beginning to look a bit strange. If you don't want to leave traces, it is indeed wise not to carry a cell phone, BUT do stick that wisdom and don't go places where they have security cameras and don't attack policewomen with a machete at these places.

    I wonder if the phone will turn up. If not, ot will be very difficult to trace his network. Makes me speculate that he might be part of a jihadist network that the police in some other country is already working on.
