A man was arrested outside Buckingham Palace in London on Friday evening on suspicion of attacking two police officers, according to Sky News.

Metropolitan Police said on Twitter the suspect was arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm and assault on police.

Police also said the London Ambulance Service was called to the scene of the incident, and that paramedics treated the officers at the scene. They have not been taken to hospital.

The motive for the attack is not yet clear.

The incident occurred shortly after a man was shot in the center of Brussels after attacking two soldiers with a knife.

The man was critically wounded but was still alive and in hospital, according to prosecutors. The soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack, one in the face and the other in the hand.

London was targeted by a terrorist attack in June, in which three terrorists drove into passengers with a van on the London Bridge, then proceeded to stab people at the nearby Borough Market, where they were eliminated by security forces.

In April, a terrorist was arrested near Parliament before he was able to carry out an attack.
