PROTESTS have erupted in Brussels after a black man died after being taken into police custody.
The 23-year-old named Ibrahima died in police custody on Saturday after having been brought in for filming a police control. Reports said his family was informed of his death only six hours later. Brussels chaos as protesters torch police station in furious clash with officers Riots have now broken out in the Belgian capital in wake of the tragedy. Footage shared on social media shows gangs of protesters setting, what appears to be, the police station on fire. Armed police can be seen firing shots towards those rioting and stones were thrown at King of Belgium's car. Another witness said there are about 400 people in the street and around 500 police officers, “some of the very angry”. Source
