A man attacked soldiers in Brussels with a knife Friday night in a suspected act of terrorism, then minutes later, another man with a knife injured two police officers in London.

One of the two soldiers targeted was "slightly" wounded, according to federal prosecutors, who have opened a terror probe.

Soldiers have become a familiar sight on the streets of the Belgian capital since terror attacks which killed more than 30 people a year ago.

Overnight, police raided the suspect's home in Bruges, north-west Belgium, with federal prosecutors opening an investigation into "attempted terrorist murder", a statement said.

The attack, which is being treated as a terrorist incident, happened in Boulevard Emile Jacqmain. As reports Reuters referring to the Belgian Prosecutor's office, previously he had not been seen associating with extremists. "The police said he had been shot by soldiers", said Thomas da Silva Rosa, a public affairs consultant.

In June, three attackers ran over pedestrians on London Bridge before jumping out and stabbing to death eight people before police shot them.
