According to Dutch media and official statements, over 1,000 people clashed with their own government late Monday in a Dutch small town during violent protests against the plans to open a center for asylum seekers, most of whom are Muslims from the Middle East and Africa.

This was just the latest in a series of countrywide protests that has occurred in numerous Dutch towns and villages since late last year over growing tensions about the record numbers of migrants being allowed to settle in the Netherlands. At this most recent demonstration, police had to intervene and disperse the large crowd of approximately 1,000 people who rallied in central Heesch.
