Clashes broke out in Brussels as Morocco fans gathered in the streets to celebrate their team's win in the last 16 of the football World Cup match against Spain on Tuesday.
Rioters set bins on fire and clashed with police, who then fired tear gas at the rioters in response.
Thousands of Morocco fans descended on the streets of Doha to celebrate their country becoming the first Arab nation to reach the World Cup quarterfinals on Tuesday.
Despite some minor trouble outside the stadium, the victory over Spain became a celebration of "Arab pride" for supporters from across the region.
Morocco won 3-0 in a penalty shootout after the match finished goalless following extra time.
So many people packed Doha's central Souq Waqif market -- a traditional gathering point for World Cup fans -- that police sealed it off just before midnight, with thousands waiting in groups at different entrances.
Saudis, Qataris and Egyptians joined the celebrations, waving their countries' flags in the traditional market as police gathered around the edge.
"This is a matter of pride, we are all happy for Morocco," said Aysha Bedawi, who came from Cairo to watch World Cup matches. (AFP)
