Belgium regrets colonial-era kidnapping of Congolese children

Children born to Belgian settler and Congolese mother in the 1940s and 50s were forcefully taken from their African homes.

    Belgium has apologised for some of the abuses committed during its colonial rule in Africa.

    The injustices include banning mixed-race marriages and kidnapping children born to Congolese mothers.

    Al Jazeera's Katia Lopez-Hodoyan reports.
