Ramadan Riots in Brussels?

That's what the Brussels Journal is reporting:

It looks as if immigrants youths want to turn nightly rioting during the Islamic holy month of ramadan into an annual tradition. Around 8:30pm last night violence erupted again in Brussels, the capital of Europe. The riots centered on the Brussels Marollen quarter and the area near the Midi Train Station, where the international trains from London and Paris arrive. Youths threw stones at passing people and cars, windows of parked cars were smashed, bus shelters were demolished, cars were set ablaze, a youth club was arsoned and a shop was looted.

Two molotov cocktails were thrown into St.Peter’s hospital, one of the main hospitals of central Brussels. The fire brigade was able to extinguish the fires at the hospital, but youths managed to steal the keys of the fire engine.

The Journal has been reporting the rioting since day one of Ramadan, but I can't find anything in the MSM about it. I Google News searched and searched the raw AP wire, but came up with absolutely nothing. Strange that no one's saying anything about this.

I don't know much about the Journal, but I do know it comes highly recommended by our friends at Galley Slaves.

I'll keep looking for more.

Update: I found a very short BBC story on the riots:

Belgian police have arrested at least 30 people, including several youths, after two nights of rioting in a mainly immigrant suburb of Brussels.

The trouble erupted in Les Marolles on Monday night after a young man of North African origin died in police custody.

Police said some of those arrested were carrying material to make petrol bombs. The situation is now said to be calm.

Faysal Chaaban, 25, was found dead in his cell on Monday morning. He had been given sedatives by a doctor.

Prosecutors said the results of toxicology tests would take weeks to come back from the laboratory.

That part about Faysal Chaaban sounded familiar to me. Here's why:

27 October: Teenagers Zyed Benna and Bouna Traore are electrocuted after climbing into an electrical sub-station in the Paris suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois, in what locals say was an attempt to hide from police. The police deny this, but news of their deaths triggers riots in the area which is home to large African and Arab communities. Arsonists destroy 15 vehicles.

That's the first entry in a timeline for the French riots of 2005. Let's hope the Brussels riots stay under control.
