CAIRO (Reuters) – Islamic State claimed responsibility for a knife attack on soldiers in the Belgian capital of Brussels on Friday, the group’s Amaq news agency said on Saturday. “The executor of the stabbing operation in Brussels is a soldier of the Islamic State and carried out the operation in response to calls for attacks against coalition states,” Amaq said, referring to a U.S.-led coalition fighting the Sunni militant group.
