Turkish citizens gather outside embassy in Brussels

On Friday night, hundreds of Turkish citizens gathered outside the Turkish embassy in Brussels to denounce the attempted military coup in their homeland.

“We’re here to support democracy,” a group of twenty-somethings from Willebroek explained to LeSoir. Turkish citizens came in support from all corners of Belgium: Antwerp, Brussels, Flemish Brabant, Limburg and elsewhere.

A number of police patrolled the outskirts of the protest as a precautionary measure, and nothing more. The rally passed peacefully.
