Anti-austerity protesters got close enough to Belgium's prime minister on Monday to splatter him with a helping of the national dish - fries and mayo.

Pictures from the business event in Namur showed Charles Michel, 39, smiling as a woman squirted sauce over his suit. His spokesman said he would not press charges, and declined comment on the breach of security around the premier of a country that has been a major recruiting hub for jihadists fighting in Syria.
