  • Description

    More than 5,000 Flemings marched through the streets of Ghent in northern Belgium on Sunday (November 22) demonstrating in favour of an amnesty for war crimes committed in Belgium (Sunday). Police intervened to break up clashes with counter demonstrators.

    A police spokesman said three people, including one policeman, were slightly injured in the clashes.

    The counter-demonstration was expected. The three-hour march was organised by the newly-formed Belgian War Crimes Amnesty Committee; police permission was granted only under the condition that the militant flemish separatist movement, the "Vlaams Militanten Orde", would not appear.

    But the announcement that the march would take place was followed immediately by a call from the Front de L'Independence confederation, a movement that supports the present confederation, for its members to turn out against the separatists.
