Official residence of Flemish PM smeared with human excrement

Hotel Errera in Brussels is the official residence of the Prime Minister of Flanders.

The Brussels Local Police Service spokeswoman Ilse Van de keere told journalists "On Wednesday afternoon around 4.15 p.m. we received call and immediately went to the scene. A crime report has been drafted and an investigation is ongoing to find out who is responsible for the vandalism."
