Amsterdam PEGIDA Clash With Pro-Muslim Saturday 6 February 2016
Riot police have clashed with demonstrators in Amsterdam as supporters of the anti-Islam, anti-migrant group PEGIDA tried to hold their first protest in the Dutch capital as part of a series of demonstrations in Europe.
A square near Amsterdam city hall that had been earmarked for the PEGIDA demonstration had to be shut down shortly before the gathering as police and explosives experts examined what police called a "suspect package."

Dutch riot police detained several people as officers on horseback intervened to separate the two groups of demonstrators. Yahoo Read More>>>>>
