Police in the Belgian capital have been deployed to disperse far-right protesters at memorial for the victims of Brussels attacks, with water cannon having been fired into the crowd.
Law enforcement intervened after tensions erupted between mourners and right-wing protesters during a crowded rally at Brussels' Place de la Bourse on Sunday.
Thousands gathered to pay tribute to the victims of Tuesday's deadly attacks in the Belgian capital, Ruptly news agency reported.
