At least 4 killed after car hits Belgian carnival crowd

TEHRAN, Mar. 20 (MNA) – A car slammed into carnival revelers early Sunday in a small town in southern Belgium, killing several people and injuring about two dozen, the mayor reported.

Media reports say at least four people were killed when a car drove into the crowd who were gathered at dawn Sunday for celebrations in Strépy-Bracquegnies, some 50 kilometers (30 miles) south of Brussels.

"A car drove from the back at high speed. And we have a few dozen injured and unfortunately several people who are killed," Mayor Jacques Gobert told RTBF radio.

Media reports said the crash may have been caused by a car chased by police.
