Belgium has elected its first black mayor. Pierre Kompany - the father of international football star Vincent Kompany - topped the poll in Ganshoren, a municipality in the north-west of Brussels. He arrived in Belgium in 1975 as a refugee from what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. He says it's a big celebration for his family.
