Netherlands protestors have blown up a bridge in Amsterdam in the anti lockdown protests.

Riots erupted in the Netherlands over the weekend after a night-time curfew to prevent the spread of COVID-19 was imposed.

Anti-lockdown protesters looted stores, set fires and clashed with police in several cities on Sunday, Dutch media reported.

Police used water cannon, dogs and mounted officers to disperse a protest in central Amsterdam on Sunday afternoon, witnesses said.

Nearly 200 people, some of them throwing stones and fireworks, were detained in the city, according to police.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte condemned the demonstrations as “unacceptable”.
