    About a hundred of Yellow Vests demonstrators took to streets of the Belgian city of Mons on Saturday without authorization from local authorities. As the police described, they were "clearly looking for provocation".

    Police arrested 38 Yellow Vests protesters on Saturday in Mons. The demonstrators vandalized the house of Socialist Party (PS) leader Elio Di Rupo, the country's former prime minister.

    According to the police, protesters threw firecrackers into his mailbox, and local police later received reinforcements from the federal forces.
