A “radicalised” gunman who killed two female police officers and a passer-by during a suspected terror attack in Belgium shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he carried out the massacre.
The knife-wielding attacker stole an officer’s firearm during a routine check and then used the weapon against police before he took a woman hostage at a school in Liege.
The 30-year-old Belgian man was shot dead by anti-terrorist officers, bringing an end to the rampage.
Chilling images posted online show the gunman, named as Benjamin Hermans, wielding two handguns after killing his victims.
He launched the attack just one day after he was released from prison so he could visit family and friends, with local reports claiming he was “radicalised” behind bars.
