Brussels ‘Peace’ march is hijacked by far-right protesters

Riot police have descended on the centre of Brussels today after hundreds of far-right protesters hijacked a peace march in the Belgian capital.

They gathered at Place de la Bourse in Brussels this afternoon and unfurled a banner denouncing ISIS before police used a water cannon on the angry crowd.

In scenes that compounded a week of grief for Belgians, protesters calling themselves ‘The Nation’ were seen making Nazi salutes as they became embroiled in a heated argument with pro-migrant groups.

Hundreds moved in and occupied the steps of the stock exchange building with some making Nazi salutes as disgusted crowds watched on.

Police wearing white helmets moved alongside a truck with a water cannon as they attempted to disperse the crowd of protesters today.
