Riot police arrest five people after vandalism and shooting in the town of Drenthe

Five people were arrested in the town of Drenthe in Coevorden after the riot police were drafted to restore order on Saturday night.

Video footage shows a group of dozens of people making a bonfire at an intersection and gathering to see it, but police said the destroyers also damaged windows, letterboxes, and traffic signs.

The riot police were finally forced to intervene around 1:30 am and arrested five men in their late twenties. No further arrests have been ruled out, police said.

According to local broadcaster RTV Drenthe, the Poppenhare district of Coevorden has been experiencing problems for several nights in a row, including street fights on New Year’s Eve.

There were sporadic troubles in other places as well. In Rotterdam, a fireworks bomb was thrown through the window of the city hall in the Lombardien district, and a fire brigade was called in to extinguish the flames.

Many homes above the office had to evacuate.

In Gelderland, two teenage boys were severely burned in two separate incidents, including fireworks, in Nijmegen and Arnhem.

“We often get seriously injured in the New Year, but this is two days later,” a police spokesman told AD.
