AMSTERDAM – Unidentified individuals have for the fourth night in a row set fire to a car in Amsterdam West. This time the arson took place in the Burgemeester van der Pollstraat, a spokesperson for the police said.


The police have not made any arrests. The Burgemeester van der Pollstraat is in the Geuzeveld-Slotermeer district, close to Slotervaart. The police assume that the arson is connected with the incident on Sunday at the police station on the August Allebéplein in the Amsterdam district Slotervaart.

Since the shooting incident on Sunday the situation in this neighbourhood has been volatile. Since the weekend youths have set fire to five cars in total. On Monday they threw stones at the police. The disturbances took place when a police officer shot and killed the 22-year-old Bilal B. at the police station after he had stabbed her and her colleague with a knife.
