Police said the suspect, a 30-year-old man had been "neutralised". It has been reported that the attacker is in critical condition while both soldiers were lightly injured. "The soldiers fired at him and neutralized the individual".

Police and Belgian Army soldiers secure the scene in downtown Brussels after a reported attack on soldiers with a knife.

Neither of the two soldiers attacked are believed to have been seriously harmed.

The case passed from local to federal prosecutors, who typically handle terrorist cases.

Belgian broadcaster RTBF reported that the attacker was a man of Somali origin aged around 30 years old, though that has not been confirmed by authorities.

Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted that "all our support is with our soldiers". "Our security services stay vigilant and we monitor the situation closely", he said.

The presence of soldiers on the streets of Brussels is part of a large-scale security operation created to reassure the public in the wake of terrorist attacks in the city in March 2016 in which 32 people were killed. In June, troops shot dead a suspected suicide bomber at Brussels' central train station. Authorities treated the incident as an attempted terrorist attack.
