Anti-Bush Protests In Belgium, Germany

Police in Brussels have clashed with several hundred demonstrators protesting President Bush's visit to the Belgian capital.

Police arrested several demonstrators during the sometimes violent clashes but there are no reports of serious injuries. Authorities used trucks to push demonstrators back from European Union headquarters, where Mr. Bush was meeting with EU leaders.

Demonstrators carried signs and chanted slogans criticizing what they called Mr. Bush's "warmongering" policies, including the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

The French News Agency reports that rallies against Mr. Bush's European visit also took place in several cities in Germany, where Mr. Bush is scheduled to arrive on Wednesday.
