Netherlands anti-lockdown protest: Fire and tear gas as protestors clash with police
The Netherlands was hit by a third night of riots on Monday as hundreds of people clashed with police, set fires, looted stores and overturned cars in multiple cities after the government imposed a night-time curfew.
Rioters first struck on Sunday night in Amsterdam, Eindhoven and multiple other towns – seeming to catch authorities off-guard and prompting warnings from some politicians of ‘civil war’. Prime Minister Mark Rutte condemned what he called the ‘criminal violence’, which police officials described as the ‘worst rioting in 40 years’. John Jorritsma, mayor of Eindhoven, warned bluntly that ‘we’re on our way to civil war’.
