Shocking footage has emerged of a Muslim woman being mown down by a car in a hit-and-run during an anti-Islam rally in the Brussels district of Molenbeek. 

Video footage of the incident shows the car, which had ploughed through a police road block, driving head-on into the woman as she crossed the road.
The woman was thrown off the car’s bonnet and skidded along the road, while the driver continued moving forward and appeared to run over her legs. 
The passenger even appears to lean out of the window to take a photo after breaking through the police barricade.
Although seriously injured, the woman appeared to be conscious to receive treatment at the scene of the crash. 
Police haven’t yet confirmed the woman’s current condition, or the motivation behind the crash. 
It came as tensions escalated in the Belgian capital, with police out in force to ward off trouble after local authorities banned the scheduled anti-Islam rally and any counter-protests. 
Several hundred people attempted to gather in defiance of the ban in the troubled neighborhood of Molenbeek, which has become known as the ‘jihadi capital of Europe’ after it emerged that a number of the Brussels and Paris terror attackers had connections with the district. 
Meanwhile smaller far-left groups were dispersed from a central Brussels square that has become a memorial to the victims of the airport and metro attacks of March 22.   
Police said they briefly detained over 100 people but only two were kept in custody, as calm returned to the district this evening. 
Authorities were determined to prevent a repeat of last weekend, when riot police fired water cannon to disperse far-right football hooligans who disrupted mourners at the makeshift shrine to the attack victims.

The sole surviving Paris suspect, Salah Abdeslam, was arrested in Molenbeek on March 18, after four months on the run as Europe’s most wanted man.
He denies having any prior knowledge of the Brussels attacks.   
It comes as authorities announced that Brussels’ Zaventem airport will partially reopen on Sunday, just 12 days after it was hit by twin ISIS suicide blasts.  
The first three ‘symbolic flights’ will take off for Faro, Turin and Athens from Sunday afternoon, Brussels Airport chief executive Arnaud Feist told reporters, and travellers will have to undergo strict new security controls before check-in.
‘These flights are the first hopeful sign from an airport that is standing up straight after a cowardly attack,’ Mr Feist said.
Passengers will have to make use of a temporary check-in facility as the airport’s departure hall was wrecked in the March 22 blasts that also struck a metro station in Brussels, killing 32 people.
