Amsterdam Remains the Most Dangerous Municipality

According to the AD Crime statistics, Amsterdam remains the most dangerous municipality in the Netherlands. The Dutch capital has traditionally had many cases of pickpocketing, street robberies and physical violence.  Maastricht comes in second, and Rotterdam is third.  Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan explains that part of the criminality is due to the large number of tourists.  They are more often victims of crime than the regular inhabitants of the city.
