A group of mainly Muslim Afghan families, who are seeking asylum in Belgium, have been eating, sleeping and teaching their children in the church of Saint John the Baptist at the Beguinage in central Brussels for more than three months, after their first request to stay in the country was rejected. The priest of the church said he opened the doors to the refugees because he disagreed with Belgium's current asylum policy.
