However, the reasons for the vandalism seen from Rotterdam to Amsterdam are no longer so clear, especially since the protesters are teenagers, reports Reuters.

Police Chief William Welders said that about 70 people were arrested by 10 pm, and water cannons were used against the robbers in Rotterdam, while tear gas was used in Harlem to disperse the crowd.

Police added that they wrote almost 6.000 fines for violating the ban on movement between 21.00 and 4.30. "This has nothing to do with the protest, this is a criminal act," said Prime Minister Mark Rutte in The Hague.
