    Background: A strike by 700-thousand self employed persons closed shops, restaurants, doctors' surgeries, news stands and stock broking firms in Bruseels on Monday.

    The strike was called in protest against excessive tax forms, value added tax, and what the strikers saw as an incomplete social assistance scheme.

    Police in riot gear patrolled the centre of the city in vans after threats against strike breakers. Many shops owned by large companies opened under police guard.

    Petrol stations were also closed and owners said they might continue their strike until their grievances over recent price increases and stricter tax controls were settled.
