More Car Arson in Amsterdam

On most evenings during the past two weeks, there have been cases of car arson in the western section of Amsterdam. On Thursday night it spread elsewhere, when one car was burned and two damaged in the more affluent Buitenveldert neighborhood in south Amsterdam. Police spokesman Gerard Vrooland said that it is possible that the media, with their attention to the arson, are playing a role in encouraging it. During these two weeks, the police have not arrested any perpetrators. Of the 11 youngsters arrested preventively, eight have already been released, due to lack of proof of guilt.
