Anger sweeps Belgium over child-sex ring

Palaces in Antwerp and Hasselt with stones; there was a bomb scare at the Vilvoorde home of Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene; and demonstrators in Turhout with pasta in their hair gave the public prosecutor dried spaghetti.

It was the third day of demonstrations in a wave of anger sweeping Belgium since magistrate Jean-Marc Connerotte was removed from investigations into a child-sex ring held responsible for killing at least four young girls. Bigger protests are expected on Sunday when marchers dressed in white and carrying white flowers will stream into Brussels. Reuter - Brussels
