Farmers protest in Brussels ahead of European elections

Hundreds of tractors from across Europe rolled into Brussels in a protest spearheaded by hardline farmers' groups against EU green policies, days before elections across the bloc.

Police said around 500 of the vehicles had gathered near the Atomium monument on the city outskirts, rallying to a call by the Dutch-founded group Farmers Defence Force (FDF), with around 1,200 demonstrators present.

It was the latest in a string of farmer protests that have brought Brussels to a halt several times in recent months.
