Authorities in Belgium have made over 100 arrests of right-wing, anti-Islam and anti-racist protestors in the Molenbeek neighborhood of Brussels following tense confrontations on Saturday, as reported by Euronews.
A white Audi car, thought to be driven by right-wing protesters, was filmed running down a Muslim woman in the street, as reported by Press TV. [Update: the drivers of the car have been reported as Molenbeek residents Redouane D. and Mohamed B. Both are thought to have taken turns driving during Saturday's incident, Redouane before the collision with the victim, and Mohamed after. Reports indicate that both drugs and alcohol may have been a factor, according to La Libre.]
Molenbeek has become notorious for being the home community of the organizers of the March 22 Brussels airport and metro attacks, as reported by RT. On concerns of follow-up acts of terrorism and angry demonstrations staged last weekend, protests were banned in Molenbeek on Saturday by the Brussels regional administration. Water cannons were reported to have been used by authorities to clear streets during previous protests.
