The Myanmar Times - - World -

A ma­chete-wield­ing man shout­ing “Al­lahu ak­bar” (God is the great­est) wounded two po­lice­women in south­ern Bel­gium be­fore be­ing shot dead, in what ap­peared to be the lat­est in a string of ji­hadist at­tacks in Europe. The Au­gust 6 at­tack out­side the main po­lice sta­tion in the city of Charleroi, around 60 kilo­me­tres from Brus­sels, left one of the of­fi­cers with “deep wounds to the face” while the other was slightly in­jured.
