Earlier today Sunday 3rd April several hundred people marched from central Liege to Vottem detention centre demanding the closure of all centres. When they arrived at the centre, 49 demonstators climbed over the fences and broke into the courtyard. A helicopter came and hovered 15m  over them whilst a planned concert continued outside. After an hour, police came and arrested the 49, whilst being subjected to a shower of projectiles thrown by the detainees.
