#BREAKING Dutch police use water cannon, horses to break up Turkish rally— AFP news agency (@AFP) 12 марта 2017 г.
As the Turkish agency Anadolu reports, Dutch police also used batons against protesters.
Dutch media inform that protesters left the gathering spot near the diplomatic mission under law enforcers’ pressure.
As it was reported earlier, Netherlands withdrew landing permission for the plane with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on board flying in for a campaign rally. Beyond that, Turkey's family minister reported on Twitter he was not being allowed to enter Turkish consulate in Rotterdam. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted pretty quickly, describing the move as a measure by “Nazi remnants and fascists”.
