In what appears to be the latest weekly terrorist attack in Europe, 7 days after the deadly events in Barcelona, Sky News and Reuters report that a man was shot in the center of Brussels on Friday evening after attacking two soldiers with a knife, according to state broadcaster RTBF reported.

The incident took place about 20:15 local time. Belgian prosecutors refuted initial reports that the assailant had been killed by the police and said that the attacker is alive but in critical condition.

"With the identity that we currently have it is a 30-year-old man who is not known for terrorist activities," a spokeswoman for the prosecution service said.
