More than 7,000 people marched through Brussels in a peaceful protest ‘against terror and hatred’ almost a month after coordinated suicide attacks in the Belgian capital killed 32 and wounded hundreds more.
The march, organised by civil society groups, was aimed at displaying a show of unity after the bloodshed.
The 6,000 people who set off from the Gare du Nord railway station were joined in the city centre by 1,000 others who started in Molenbeek, a rundown district that has gained an unwelcome reputation as a jihadi haven.
Many of the thousands to march through the streets were clutching Belgian flags, flowers and emblems and banners of peace.
