Police made a further 28 arrests at least on Sunday nights, at least on Sunday night, in the third night of trouble in towns and cities across the Netherlands.
In Enschede and Groningen, gangs of youths set off fireworks, smashed shop windows, and trashed bicycles. In Rosendaal, rampaging youths set several fires, including one close to a priory school.
The NRC said in it’s analysis of the trouble that the situation is very similar to those in February when the curfew was introduced.
Public safety expert Marnix Eysink Smeets told the NRC the trouble is down to a combination of factors – anger over the possible introduction of 2G, the ban on football supporters, and, on Friday, the announcement that there would be a ban on New Year fireworks.
