    200 demonstraters gathered on Monday morning at the gates of the Schaerbeek school where a toddler was allegedly abused.

    The protestors were supporting the family of the toddler who was allegedly assaulted in the school. When the mother collected her child, she found blood in the toddler’s underwear, which was due to an injury, according to an investigation.

    The protestors are angry because the school is not providing information, one of them told Bruzz. Most of them are waiting for further information from the court. “We are trying not to panic, but we do not know anything at all,” said a mother of three. “As long as we are kept in the dark, we will keep protesting,” another protestor said.

    The court has started an investigation, but cannot give any details yet. Different explanations are possible for the injury: abuse, or just a game between children.
