'Two other officers were wounded.
'La Libre Belgique newspaper quoted a police source as saying the gunman shouted Allahu Akbar — God is greatest in Arabic.
'The shooter then fled to a nearby school where he took a woman hostage.
'Broadcaster RTBF said the gunman was later shot dead by police.
'The Belga news agency reported that the children from the school were quickly moved to a safe area.
Perhaps not quite such good drills after all if he was able to arm himself courtesy of the plod.
'LIEGE, Belgium (AP) — A knife-wielding man stabbed two police officers Tuesday in the Belgian city of Liege, stole their weapons and shot them and a bystander dead in an attack that prosecutors fear could be terror-related.
'The attacker, who was later killed by police, was an inmate who had been granted a few hours release Monday but failed to return to prison, officials said. It wasn’t immediately clear why he was imprisoned, but media reports say that he’s a known drug offender.
'Liege prosecutors’ spokesman Philippe Dulieu said the man approached two police officers from behind carrying a knife and stabbed them several times.
' “He then took their weapons. He used the weapons on the officers, who died,” Dulieu told reporters.
'Dulieu said the attacker then shot dead a 22-year-old man in a vehicle that was just leaving a parking place outside a nearby high school. The attacker then took a woman hostage inside the school.
' “Liege police intervened. He came out firing at police, wounding a number of them, notably in the legs. He was shot dead,” the spokesman said.'
