131 arrested on ‘calmer’ night during Dutch virus curfew

first_imgTHE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch police say that the fourth night of the Netherlands’ coronavirus curfew passed more peacefully than the previous three nights that were marred by rioting. Even so, officers arrested 131 people, mainly for public order offenses and incitement. Underscoring the role of young people who have been forced to stay home from school for weeks due to the country’s tough lockdown, police said Wednesday that most suspects arrested for inciting riots using social media were under age 18. The rioting has rocked the Netherlands, which has a caretaker government after Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s ruling coalition resigned earlier this month. The pandemic is expected to be a key campaign issue ahead of a general election scheduled for March 17.last_img
