Demining services have been deployed to the scene to determine if explosive material is still there, according to state television NOS.

Last January, when a curfew came into force to fight Covid-19, a screening center was set on fire in the village of Urk in the near province of Flevoland.

For several days, the Netherlands had experienced riots, the largest having taken place in the country for several decades.
