Steel workers from ArcelorMittal in Liege, Belgium, take cover as police use a water canon during a protest near the Walloon Minister President’s office in Namur, Belgium, Tuesday.

The world’s leading steel and mining company ArcelorMittal announced last week that it will close a coke plant and six production lines in Belgium, in a move that threatens 1,300 jobs.
