TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Hundreds of yellow jacket demonstrators clashed with police while protesting against high taxes and living in Brussels.
Police trucks fired tear gas and water cannons on protesters who tried to approach government buildings and offices in central Brussels and began throwing rocks and paving stones at the barricades.
The Yellow Jacket movement that started in France two weeks ago gained traction in Belgium.
Around 60 people were arrested for disturbing public order.
Earlier, dozens of protesters wearing the high-visibility vests that have become a uniform for the movement blocked city streets with pieces of scaffolding or by gathering on roads, causing traffic chaos along major city routes.
Protest roadblocks were also in place near the city of Charleroi, some 60 kilometers south of Brussels.
A video obtained from Euronews shows the clashes between police and protesters.
