Scuffles in Brussels as protests spread

Belgian police are scuffling with yellow-vested protesters calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Charles Michel as hundreds of marchers try to enter the European quarter of Brussels.
Police used pepper spray on a small group of men who threw street signs, bottles and other objects as they tried to break through a barricade near the European Parliament.
Walking behind a banner marked “social winter is coming,” the protesters have been chanting ”(French President Emmanuel) Macron, Michel resign.”
The rallies, which started at different locations around the city and converged on the European quarter, have disrupted road and rail traffic.
Dozens of people were searched at stations.
Police have warned people to stay away from the area.
