Dutch police fire left several injured in the port city of Rotterdam on Friday, where rioters protesting against sanitary measures set a police car on fire, threw stones and set off fireworks.
The incidents erupted during a protest against health restrictions and government plans to restrict access of unvaccinated people to certain sites. Several dozen people were arrested and at least seven people were injured, including police officers, in an outbreak of nighttime violence on one of Rotterdam’s main shopping streets.
The Netherlands were the first in Western Europe to reintroduce partial containment last week with a series of health restrictions, notably affecting the restaurant sector, to cope with an outbreak of Covid-19 cases.
