BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – A machete attack on two police officers in the Belgian city of Charleroi is regarded as an act of terrorism by the country’s Federal Prosecutor's Office, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said Sunday.

"The Federal Prosecutor's Office told us that an investigation into an attempted terrorist murder started taking into account the perpetrator’s statements at the moment of the attack," Michel told journalists.

On Saturday, a man screaming "Allahu Akbar" injured two police officers with a machete near a police station. Local media reported that one of the officers had sustained serious injuries and was hospitalized, while the other was slightly wounded. The police said there was no threat to the lives of the officers.

The perpetrator was shot by a third police officer and died later in hospital.
