The Hague: Riot Police Flee from Riots but then Return

Major riots have taken place in the Schilderswijk neighborhood of The Hague, which is one of the most problematic neighborhoods in all of the Netherlands. Earlier in the week, an Aruban national, Mitch Henriquez, died due to strangling by the police when he was arrested. The police were attacked with stones, bottles and fireworks. The officers subsequently fled, along with dozens of members of the riot police unit. Later on, the police returned and removed the rioters. During the riots, over a hundred people shouted anti-Semitic slogans.
