Police in the Belgian city of Ghent shot and injured a knife-wielding woman who allegedly stabbed two people on Sunday just an hour after a similar attack took place in south London. The attacker was reportedly shot in the hand by the forces.
The attack in London was carried out by a radical Islamic terrorist who was promptly shot and killed by Metropolitan Police in that city.
