Hundreds Of Anti-NATO Activists Detained In Brussels

Reports say that more than 480 activists protesting NATO have been detained outside the military alliance's headquarters.

The Belga news agency reported that the protest ahead of the alliance's May summit was supposed to include activists entering the headquarters and symbolically shutting it down.

However, it appears the activists weren't successful.

Roel Stynen of the "Vredesactie” peace organization accused NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen of wanting to turn the alliance into "a military intervention apparatus," pointing to its missions in Afghanistan and Libya.
