Dutch police clash with anti-lockdown rioters – BBC News in 2022

Updated: 07-2022


Dutch police have shot and wounded at least two people after rioting erupted in Rotterdam over new Covid-19 measures.

Protesters threw rocks and fireworks at them and set police cars ablaze.

Hundreds of protesters had gathered to show their anger at government plans for a Covid vaccine pass, and a ban on fireworks on New Year’s Eve.

The Netherlands imposed a three-week partial Covid lockdown last week as cases surged.

Seven people were injured and at least 20 arrested in a night condemned by Rotterdam’s mayor as “an orgy of violence”.
