Brussels, Aug 7: Belgium's prime minister announced today a 'terror' probe into a machete attack that wounded two policewomen, in what appeared to be the latest in a string of jihadist attacks in Europe.

"We have been informed by federal prosecutors that an investigation has started for attempted terrorist murder... given certain elements (in the case)," Charles Michel told reporters.
