Brussels: Police have detained about 200 protesters who tried to break into NATO headquarters to demand nuclear disarmament and the withdrawal of all the alliance`s forces in Afghanistan.
In a pre-announced action, the protesters of "NATO GAME OVER" stormed the fenced-off area around the headquarters in Brussels, but none got into the compound itself.
Belgian police chased the protesters around the fields and lined them up in large groups before they were taken away. The action came ahead of next month`s NATO summit in Chicago.
