BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – Earlier in the day, some 340 football fans gathered in the city of Vilvoorde and made their way to the Brussels Stock Exchange where people have been laying flowers and lighting candles in memory of those who died in the suicide bombings. According to the police statement, the crowd attacked one of the shops as they headed toward the North railway station in Brussels. All public places in the region were closed following the incident.

Police started to push back the nationalists as they reached the stock exchange, which triggered clashes between officers and protesters.

“They were pushed back, about ten people were detained,” the police statement said.

Earlier media reports said, police were forced to use water cannons to disperse the hundreds-strong group.
