Amsterdam mayor wants to deal with Moroccan unrest

Job Cohen, Amsterdam's mayor, has called representatives of all city neighborhoods to discuss growing unrest among the Moroccan community.

An 18 year old Moroccan was killed in an accident last November when trying to escape with a stolen a car from the police chase. Two weeks ago a 17 year old was killed when he apparently tried to escape a policeman who was checking his bike.

Many Moroccans feel discriminated by the police, especially by the new ID law.
