AMSTERDAM  - Two teenagers arrested during the riots around the Museumplein in Amsterdam on Monday are still in custody. They are being held on suspicion of robbery, a spokesperson for the police in Amsterdam reports.

The police arrested a total of 28 students between the ages of 13 and 17 during the student protest in Amsterdam. Two girls were among those arrested. Most were put into the arrest van for public violence and destruction of property. 26 of them have since been released.

The demonstration on the Museumplein quickly got out of hand. Students headed into nearby neighbourhoods and destroyed car and shop windows, threw garbage bags onto the streets and set off fireworks. The riot police had to use a water cannon on the Museumplein to break up the crowd.
