Belgian Police Attacked After Arresting Veiled Woman
BRUSSELS - Protesters hurled bins and metal barriers at a Brussels police station on Thursday night after a Muslim woman was arrested for refusing to remove a face veil, Belgian media reported.
"They tried to enter by force, but they were not able to," a spokesman for Brussels police told broadcaster RTL. "So instead they threw metal barriers and bins."
Six protesters were arrested, according to state broadcaster VRT. The woman was released and expected to be questioned later.
Belgium and France both banned people from wearing full face veils in public last year. (...)
