Default ISIS attack in Belgium

BRUSSELS—Belgian federal authorities have opened a terrorism probe following a weekend machete attack on two police officers in the city of Charleroi for which the extremist group Islamic State claimed responsibility.

The federal prosecutor’s office said Sunday the assailant was a 33-year-old Algerian man who had been living in Belgium since 2012. They said the man, who was shot during the attack on Saturday and later died, was known to police for common crimes but not for terror links. He was identified by the initials K.B.

Islamic State’s news agency Amaq on Sunday claimed the attack was carried out by one of the group’s “soldiers” in response to strikes by the U.S.-led coalition fighting against it in Iraq and Syria.

The attack is the latest in a series carried out or inspired by the Sunni Muslim extremist group that have left scores dead, in what Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said was a “new reality” in Europe.

In addition to orchestrating large-scale attacks, like those in Paris last November that killed 130 people, the group has also encouraged sympathizers to carry out lone-wolf attacks targeting civilians. The group regularly claims responsibility for attacks despite no concrete evidence of coordination with the assailants.

Mr. Michel said the federal prosecutors had opened a probe into “attempted terrorist murders.” The prosecutors said the investigative judge involved specialized in terrorism cases.
