Five people were arrested after a protest in Amsterdam against terrorism and the PKK got out of hand. About 80 Turkish protesters tried to force their way into a nearby Kurdish cultural center. At the time the center was holding a meeting for the victims of the Turkish earthquake. The protesters attacked th epolice, smashed car windows and vandalized the Kurdish center. There were rumors of shots being fired. Nine people were injured, including five police agents.
The protest march then continued on, breaking up later into several small disturbances.
A similar protest in Rotterdam was banned. There were rumors that many Kurds were on their way to Amsterdam, and so the main highway was closed off.
