Video footage has emerged of a Muslim woman being mown down by a car in a hit-and-run during an anti-Islam rally in the Brussels district of Molenbeek.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Barbara R) Video footage of the incident shows the car, which had ploughed through a police road block, driving head-on into the woman as she crossed the road.
The woman was thrown off the car’s bonnet and skidded along the road, while the driver continued moving forward and appeared to run over her legs. The passenger even appears to lean out of the window to take a photo after breaking through the police barricade.
Although seriously injured, the woman appeared to be conscious to receive treatment at the scene of the crash. Police haven’t yet confirmed the woman’s current condition, or the motivation behind the crash. (I’ll give you 3 guesses)
It came as tensions escalated in the Belgian capital, with police out in force to ward off trouble after local authorities banned the scheduled anti-Islam rally and any counter-protests.
