Protesters in Belgium shot with water cannons protesting the Islamic State

Belgium police shot water cannons at protesters in attempts to disperse the crowd that gathered at the Bourse to demonstrate against Islamic State group and any further migration into Europe.

 

Most of the protestors peacefully gathered at the square to voice their frustration. Local media sources said the protesters were from a right-wing nationalist movement.

 

Prime Minister Charles Michel told the Belga news agency, “It is highly inappropriate that protesters have disrupted the peaceful reflection at the Bourse. I strongly condemn these disturbances”.

 

Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur called the group “scoundrels”.
