In a tragic turn of events, the Euro 2024 qualifier between Belgium and Sweden was halted at halftime following a shooting in Brussels. 

Two individuals lost their lives, prompting players to unanimously opt against continuing the game. The incident occurred just 5 kilometers from the King Baudouin Stadium, where the match was taking place. 

The perpetrator, who remains at large, claimed allegiance to the Islamic State. 

Belgium and Swedish authorities swiftly heightened security measures to safeguard visiting fans. This incident comes amidst a series of Quran-burning protests in Sweden and Denmark, provoking international outrage and prompting reevaluation of liberal laws on freedom of speech in Scandinavia. 

The attack led to a surge in terror threat levels in Brussels and reinforced border checks between France and Belgium. The Belgian Foreign Minister called for resolute action against radicalism, extending condolences to the victims’ families. 

Prime Minister De Croo urged vigilance while emphasizing the importance of not sharing sensitive material out of respect for the victims.

Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was assassinated on October 16th, 2017 when a car bomb was detonated inside her vehicle close to her Bidnija home. 

The killing sparked massive protests and controversies in Malta, with international news reporting on the assassination. Then Prime Minister Joseph Muscat also resigned ‘due to the political crisis’ after mass protests called for his resignation. 

Honouring Daphne’s memory, European Parliament President Roberta Metsola posted a photo of her and Daphne’s father, Michael Vella.

‘Even though she was the subject of attacks, dehumanisation and threats, Daphne never gave up and kept on searching for the truth, relentlessly’ wrote Metsola. 

‘Six years later, we remain steadfast in seeing the truth exposed and justice served. Side by side with her father Michael and all her family.’ 

The Daphne Caruana Galizia Foundation also took to social media, writing: ‘Today marks 6 years since Daphne’s assassination. Full justice has not been delivered and the conditions that enabled her murder persist. There is no justice without change, but that won’t happen alone. Be part of the process. Join the protest in Valletta tonight.’

The foundation has a set of activities planned for the day, with a demonstration and a vigil planned for Valletta as well as a silent gathering in Bidnija, Mosta.
