Reactants
X, X represents Cl or Br + FeX3, X represents Cl or Br + benzene
X2 (where X is Cl or Br) + FeX3 + benzene

Mechanism
reactants --> products

reactants --> products

reactants --> products
This product can have sevaral resonance forms.

reactants --> products + HX + FeX3

Electron movement arrows are red; bonds and atoms that are affected are blue. The colors have no impact on the structures or mechanisms; they are just there for clarity.
