Since the 23rd of this month, anti curfew protests have taken place in many places in the Netherlands, which quickly turned into riots and conflicts. At least 10 police officers were injured in the latest clashes between police and protestors, and shops were robbed in cities such as Rotterdam, Amsterdam and the Hague. Dutch police strongly condemned the riot, saying it had nothing to do with citizens’ right to demonstrate.
At least 184 people suspected of taking part in demonstrations and riots in the Netherlands have been arrested, Dutch police said on the 26th.
