Riot erupts on streets of the Hague as ‘migrants’ attack cops with bricks and torch police car – with officers firing tear gas as brawls rage out of control

A riot has erupted on the streets of the Hague as ‘migrants’ attack cops with bricks and torch police cars.

Dozens of rioters were filmed launching running out of a building in the Netherlands as multiple police vans drove to the scene.

Another clip also showed the aftermath. Buildings had several smashed windows and parked vehicles were on fire. 

Shards of glass covered the streets and smoke from the tear gas could be seen seeping into the air. 

Netherlands-based journalist Owen O’Brien shared the footage on X and wrote: ‘Rioters break into an entrance at the #Opera. 

‘Windows are broken and attempts are made to enter. The fire brigade has also left again and cannot extinguish the fire.’

Jan van Zanen, mayor of The Hague, also authorised police to use tear gas, a spokesman told the Netherlands Times. 

The mayor also issued an emergency order for the area around Fruitweg.

The outlet also reported that the violence stemmed from ‘a brawl between two groups of Eritreans’.

Police Unit The Hague posted on X: ‘At #Fruitweg in #DenHaag a confrontation between two groups of Eritreans resulted in a fight.

‘Stones were thrown. We act with the riot police, among others, to restore public order.’
