Officers responded with tear gas and water cannon and arrested at least 55 people. Police in the capital of Amsterdam also used a water cannon to disperse an outlawed demonstration against the lockdown on a major square ringed by museums. Video showed police spraying people grouped against a wall of the Van Gogh Museum. In Eindhoven, 125 kilometers (78 miles) south of Amsterdam, a central square near the city’s main railway station was littered with rocks, bicycles and shattered glass.last_img
