Brussels - Small riots during anti-austerity demos

BRUSSELS - 20 000 people responded to the call of the syndicats to protest in the margins of the eurosummit against the austerity measures. The demonstrations came from four different spots in the city, converging in the centre. More or less all trafic was blocked.

Incidents occured in the street of the ministries and offices. For two hours, masked and unmasked demonstrators, threw stones, bottles and fireworks to the cops. Cops used the water cannon and teargas to disperse the crowd, which failed. Two persons were arrested, one for rebellion and another one for trying to take a photograph material from the cops. The windows of some ministries and an office were smashed.
