An Islamic extremist murdered two female police officers and an innocent bystander one day after being released from prison in Liege, Belgium.



The terrorist, 36-year-old Benjamin Herman, initially only had a knife. Herman stole a police officer's sidearm after stabbing her in an ambush-style attack. He reportedly shouted, "Allahu Akbar," Arabic for "God is great" before opening fire.

After rushing to a nearby school and taking a hostage, Herman was killed in a hail of gunfire with first responders – but not before injuring two more officers.

Authorities are determining when and how his radicalization occurred. 

Belgium remains on high alert since an ISIS cell organized attacks in Paris and Belgium over the winter of 2015-16 that killed hundreds of people.
