Minister, Brussels mayor tell people not to march in solidarity event

Belgium's interior minister and the mayor of Brussels are asking people not to participate in a March against Fear on Sunday in the capital, Belga news agency reports.

Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon and Brussels Mayor Yvan Mayeur point to limited "police capacity" and the need to prioritize the investigation into the attacks, according to Belga.

"We of course share the emotion of the population," the officials say. "But we would like for the marches to be delayed by a few weeks."
