A Brussels woman was causing a serious disturbance in a busy mall yesterday, hacking at three people, stabbing one in the back and the other in the stomach. When police confronted the Filipino woman, she refused to drop the machete. That’s when a policeman shot her point blank in the arm.
The 52-year-old Filipino woman was accused of attempted murder, but hasn’t yet been questioned by prosecutors.
Police aren’t ruling out terrorism, but it seems more than likely that this woman is disturbed, not a member of ISIS. “No motive is being ruled out at this stage but terrorism is not the most likely case,” said police spokesman Xavier Dellicour.
