Dutch mounted police disperse demonstrators protesting over lockdown

Dutch police deployed officers and water cannons in The Hague on Sunday after clashes erupted following a protest against COVID-19 lockdown measures.

The protest against the government’s handling of the health crisis had originally been banned by The Hague mayor Johan Remkes, over fears that social distancing measures would not be respected and that unrest would break out, police said in a statement.
