11 Muslim illegal aliens were arrested yesterday following a riot involving Syrians, Afghans, and Iraqis which broke out over a dispute involving a Syrian woman refusing to wear a headscarf.
Breitbart Those arrested following the riot at a migrant reception centre in Moorslede quarter of Leopoldsburg, Belgium, have now been removed, reports Het Laatste Nieuws. Red Cross spokeswoman, An Luyten, confirmed: “The four that were part of the core portion have been transferred to a detention centre. The seven others are individually housed and distributed in other reception centres in Flanders.”
The trigger for the riot, which saw the migrants using chairs, broomsticks and rubbish bins on each other, was a dispute over a Syrian woman’s refusal to wear a headscarf, reports Flanders News.
“Two or three Afghans had been targeting a young girl from Syria for a couple of days because she was not covering her head,” explained Ms. Luyten, “which is weird, because several other girls were also not wearing a headscarf. It is not clear why they were after this girl in particular.”
The argument ended up creating two groups among the migrants, with Syrian and Iraqi residents defending the girl on the one side, and Afghan refugees on the other.
