>> Two police officers have been stabbed in Brussels in a suspected militant attack. According to local media, one officer was knifed in the neck and another in the stomach. The attacker then broke the nose of a third policeman who'd arrived on the scene. Identified as 43-year-old Belgian, Hicham D., he was shot in the leg and taken away by an ambulance.

Early on Wednesday afternoon the city's Gare du Nord Railway Station was closed for an hour because of a bomb alert. Bomb disposal teams checked the area, and train services went back to normal.
