EU Capital ‘Hellhole’ Brussels Experiences Violent New Year’s Eve (Video)
US President Donald Trump described EU capital Brussels as a ‘hellhole’ during his presidential campaign back in 2016, and since a few years, it is indeed living up to that reputation. Whereas 2018 saw the replacement of a mayor fired over corruption, various riots, youth attacks against police, small-scale terrorist attacks and an upsurge in overall crime, it was New Year’s Eve celebrations in Molenbeek that really topped it off.
During an ordinary weekend night, the fire brigades in Brussels, which houses both the Nato and European Commission headquarters, are called upon around twenty times on average.

Last night saw 83 interventions, especially around the Zwarte Vijvers district in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. Trash cans, vehicles and Christmas tree were set on fire, several bus stops and streetlights were destroyed. A pharmacy was also looted.

The mirrors and windshields of the fire truck were ripped off. The firefighters present were not injured, but the Brussels fire brigade has filed a complaint against unknown persons. They ask that the guilty be identified and prosecuted as the firefighters involved protest to serve the commune further unless the behaviour of residents changes.
An unknown young man was stabbed to death at 3 am in the commune of Schaerbeek. The victim was killed during a confrontation between two youth groups at the Liedtsplein. The reason for the stabbing is not yet clear.

The young man was transported to hospital, but died there in the course of the night, reports Mr Gilles Dejemeppe of the Brussels public prosecutor. "The victim has not yet been identified, but it is probably a young man who may have been illegally in the country."
The police have not yet arrested a suspect.
