The soldiers received just minor injuries with one suffering facial wounds.

A spokeswoman for the Belgian prosecution service said: “With the identity that we currently have, it is a 30-year-old man who is not known for terrorist activities.”

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted: “All our support to our military. Our security services remain attentive. We are following the situation closely.”
