Belgium: Brussels mayor makes homelessness illegal during cold snap

Vincent De Wolf, the Mayor of the Brussels borough of Etterbeek, ordered the local police force to arrest homeless people who accept offers of shelter during this week's cold snap of -10 Celsius (14 Fahrenheit) on Monday. Outside a SAMU social refuge in Brussels, one homeless person gave his support to the mayor's plan. «I totally agree that we shouldn't sleep in the street. It's too cold... Еще. How many thousands of people die every year?» he said. The measure is designed to provide shelter to homeless people who could be endangering their lives in sub-zero temperatures.
