An MP3 player is at the center of a murder and a major protest in Belgium, after a 17-year-old was killed over the device.

Joe Van Holsbeeck was stabbed five times in the chest after refusing to turn his MP3 player over to two muggers on April 12. The murder shocked the country so much that 80,000 people turned out over the weekend for a silent march.

The suspects are still at large. The protest was the largest in Belgium since 1996.
