Coronavirus pandemic: Calm returns to Netherlands after 3 nights of riots

The Dutch justice minister said Tuesday that people arrested amid three nights of rioting sparked by the country's coronavirus curfew will face swift prosecution.

The violence has stretched the police and led at times to the deployment of military police.
