The police of the Belgian capital in the evening with the help of water cannons were able to oust from the park of Brussels young people who had previously staged riots.
Earlier it was reported that about five thousand young people on Thursday gathered in the park Bois de la Cambre in Brussels for the “festival”, which was previously reported in social networks. The holiday was not sanctioned by the metropolitan administration, and restrictive measures continue to apply in Belgium in connection with a new outbreak of coronavirus. Despite the fact that the event turned out to be an April Fool’s joke, the young people gathered in the park refused to disperse and began to show aggression towards the police who arrived in the park.
The police managed to disperse the crowd in the park with water cannons. The guards also called on the young people through loudspeakers not to violate the restrictive measures and to disperse. Those who came to the festival threw bottles and sticks at the police. Now the situation in the park is calm, several ambulances have arrived, they will take the victims to the hospital.
