BRUSSELS:  Police used water cannon to control hundreds of protesters in central Brussels on Sunday after they ignored an official call for solidarity marches following Tuesday’s bomb attacks to be postponed.

White-helmeted riot police moved behind the water cannon to push back the crowd which public broadcaster RTBF said numbered between 500 and 1,000.

Protesters shouted slogans condemning the airport and metro bomb attacks, which killed 31 people and injured scores of others, and expressing solidarity with the victims.
