Brussels - Striking workers at the Belgian national airline Sabena clashed with police yesterday at Brussels airport, adding to the chaos facing passengers after the carrier cancelled flights for the second day in a row.

A crowd of up to 2,000 protesters threw stones and eggs as police barred them from entering the building. Police later turned water cannons on the demonstrators, who descended on the airport tarmac, before rounding them up. Reuter
