“We denounce the incident…involving police in Belgium, which resulted in the death of a two-year-old child,” Minister of Migration and Displacement, Jassim al-Jaff said in a statement.
He called for bringing those responsible for the incident to accountability, going on to urge international organizations to ensure the safety of Iraqi refugees.
On Thursday, Belgian media outlets reported that a two-year-old Iraqi baby girl was shot by police while chasing a vehicle carrying illegal migrants. The injured baby lost her life on the way to a hospital.
Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon said an investigation has been launched into the incident.
