Members of a fire squad attacked while responding to a call in the Brussels migrant ghetto of Molenbeek believe they may have been lured there, according to reports.
An emergency crew arrived on the scene of a garbage can blaze in the notorious no-go zone before realizing the street had been partially blocked with other containers.
“When we approached the fire, our fire truck was suddenly pelted with glass bottles. They were thrown at us by people standing on the roof of a building. Projectiles were also thrown during the extinguishing,” spokesman Walter Derieuw told Het Nieuwsblad.
