   BRUSSELS (AP) -- Police fired water cannons and tear gas in Brussels on 
Sunday to disperse protesters marching against COVID-19 vaccinations and 

   The march followed demonstrations in other European capitals on Saturday 
that also drew thousands of people protesting vaccine passports and other 
requirements that European governments have imposed in hopes of ending the 
coronavirus pandemic.

   In Brussels, demonstrators chanted "Liberty!" as they marched.

   White-helmeted police riot officers later sought to disperse protesters, who 
ignored instructions broadcast over loudspeakers that the demonstration was 
finished and that they should leave.

   Police water cannon trucks fired powerful jets at protesters, while thick 
clouds of smoke and snaking trails of gas filled the air in the Belgian capital.
