Around 7,000 people marched through Brussels against jihadist violence on Sunday, nearly a month after coordinated suicide attacks in the Belgian capital killed 32 people and wounded hundreds of others.Organised by civil society groups, the so-called "march against terror and hatred" was aimed at putting on a show of unity after the bloodshed.Carrying a banner in French and Flemish reading "#alltogether against hatred and terror," the main group of marchers was led by families of the victims, followed by representatives from various religious communities.Thirty-two people were killed in the March 22 bomb attacks, which targeted Zaventem airport and a subway train at Maalbeek station, near the European Union (EU) institutions in central Brussels.The march, which involved 160 associations, was initially to have taken place on March 27 but was postponed after the authorities raised security concerns.
