Rioting youths set fire to a corona test center in the Netherlands. In addition, they had attacked the police in the fishing town of Urk, 80 kilometers northeast of Amsterdam, with fireworks, the police said on Sunday. The young people had violated the nocturnal curfew due to Corona, which has been in force since Saturday, and which applies from 9:00 p.m. to 4:30 a.m. Nationwide officials imposed more than 3,600 fines for violating the curfew. 25 people were arrested.
The police and local government in Urk were outraged by the riots. The lighting of the test station was a low point, they said. “That is not only unacceptable, but also a slap in the face, especially for the local health authorities who are doing everything in their power in the test center to help the people in Urk.”
