Police in the Belgian city of Ghent have shot and injured a knife-wielding woman, after she stabbed two people. The incident took place around an hour after a Muslim “terrorist” knifeman was shot dead by police in London.
RT (h/t Daniel S) According to Belgian news site HLN, a dark-skinned woman attacked two passers-by with a knife on the Bevrijdingslaan street in central Ghent. The woman reportedly stabbed one of her victims in the stomach.
Armed police officers neutralized the woman with a gunshot to the hand, and she was taken into custody. The two victims have been taken to hospital, but their condition is not believed to be serious.
In scenes similar to those in London, police in Ghent have cordoned off the Bevrijdingslaan, and emergency services are securing the area.
