United News Network
Belgian police on Wednesday detained 15 members of a radical Salafist Islamic group after they harassed passers-by in the city of Antwerp and shouted anti-Western slogans, police said.
The Sharia for Belgium activists distributed leaflets glorifying Islam and criticizing the Western way of life in a central street of the northern port city Antwerpen.
Organisers had made no request for a demonstration, which was therefore authorised,said the spokeswoman.
