The attacker, aged 30, was harmed in the road yet later passed on in healing facility. One of the fighters endured an injury to the face, alternate has hand damage.
Photos demonstrated the road cordoned off with police and troops in the zone.
Belgium’s government prosecutor’s office said the aggressor was “not known for fear based oppressor exercises” but rather said that he had yelled “Allahu Akbar” (“God is most prominent” in Arabic) amid the attack.
The assault on Friday is being dealt with as fear based oppressor occurrence, the prosecutor’s office said.
Witness Ryan MacDonald composed on Twitter that he heard the sound of a discharge before observing an “overwhelming police nearness outside”.
Another witness said he heard “two uproarious blasts and a heap of sirens”.

The assault occurred on Boulevard Emile Jacqmain in the focal point of Brussels.
Heard two bangs and loads of sirens in Brussels, anyone know what's happening?

The nearness of troopers in the city of Brussels is a piece of a vast scale security operation intended to console general society in the wake of psychological oppressor assaults in the city in March 2016 in which 32 individuals were murdered.
Troops on watch in a bustling area of shops and eateries in the focal point of the city seem to have been the objective for this most recent assault.
