How to remove broken metal shelf brackets

I assembled a piece of furniture for my mother in law a few years back.  The shelves were supported by small metal shelf brackets.  The brackets fatigued and broke off.  I now have small metal pegs which need to be removed.  

I have read in this forum about drilling out plastic pegs.  Is there a different procedure for metal?
