Belgium: Thousands march against "terror and hatred" in Brussels

Belgium, Brussels
April 17, 2016 at 17:34 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands marched through central Brussels on Sunday, to commemorate the victims of last month's attacks in the city and to rally against hatred.

At least 7,000 people took part in the rally with many of the relatives of the victims from last month's Brussels bombings present. The march began at Brussels North Station at around 14:00 local time (12:00 GMT) and is scheduled to finish at the Fontainas square in the centre of the city.

At least 34 people were killed and more than 180 injured in bomb attacks carried out on Brussels international airport and the Maelbeek metro station on Tuesday, March 22. The attacks occurred just four days after Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in November's Paris attacks, was captured by Belgian police in Brussels. The so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS, ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attacks.
