Twenty-four Turkish children were hospitalised in Belgium with suspected food poisoning, local media reported Tuesday.
The children, aged from 10 to 16, were taking part in a holiday camp organized by a Turkish cultural centre in Sint-Niklaas. The town is located near Antwerp, the capital of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium, DPA reported.
The Belga news agency reported they were taken overnight in four nearby hospitals after suffering from "sharp pains in their stomachs and intestines."
