Belgians protest release of killer's ex-wife

Demonstrations held in Brussels after court ruling to free Michelle Martin after half of her 30-year sentence.

    Demonstrations have been held in Belgium to protest the release of the ex-wife of child killer Marc Dutroux.

    The rallies in Brussels follow a court ruling earlier this month to free Michelle Martin.

    Martin has served half of her 30-year sentence for her involvement in the kidnap, rape and deaths of two of her husband's victims.

    Al Jazeera's Peter Sharp reports from Brussels.
