In Buizingen, just south-west of Brussels, a dinner party was going on for Anderlecht supporters. They were harassed by hooligans of rival club Standard de Liège, it has been reported. An ambulance came to the scene to help one of the victims, but the ambulance and its staff were harassed by by-standers themselves.
