Hundreds of people rioted in Brussels on Wednesday night over the death of a 23-year-old in police custody at the weekend.

Video from the scene shows King Philippe's car being hit by projectiles as it passed through the area.

A police station was reportedly briefly set on fire during the unrest, which saw local streets vandalised.

A police spokeswoman told the AFP news agency they had made several arrests and said four officers were injured.
