50 people were arrested on Saturday in Brussels after police officers were attacked and shops damaged on the margins of a protest over the recent revelations of migrant slave markets in Libya, authorities said.

A group of people broke off from the demonstration against slavery in Libya before putting on masks and turning violent.

The incidents occurred in the busy commercial neighbourhood around Place Louise near the Belgian capital’s city centre, police spokesman Ilse Van de Keere told AFP.
