Protest at Renault job losses

Renault workers and their supporters took to the streets of Brussels to protest against the French car-maker's decision to close a factory employing 3,100 people near the Belgian capital.

Meanwhile, officials said the Belgian government may soon take Renault to court for breaking labour laws with Thursday's sudden announcement that the factory at Vilvoorde will close in July. AP - Brussels
