A bus carrying FC Bruges fans parked at the stop on the highway, where four German-Turks were also having dinner, at around 8:45 p.m.
Eight fans who got off the bus walked up to the group having dinner at the stop and allegedly spat at the group before swearing and attacking them. The victims, one of whom was reported to be a pregnant woman, were hospitalized after the attack.
Bystanders who witnessed the attack recorded the bus’ license plate number to the police after the vehicle left.
Police said they had identified the suspects, who reportedly live near Antwerp.
