Ten public officials from Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Arnhem travelled to France for a three-day study trip regarding the issue of Islamic radicalisation. Yesterday evening, in Saint-Denis, in between two of the meetings that had been scheduled for their programme, they were attacked and sprayed with pepper gas. The attackers then seized their bags and mobile phones before taking flight.
One of the members of the Dutch delegation was injured in the head. According to the Dutch ambassador in France, Mr. Ed Kronenburg, despite their unfortunate experience, the Dutch officials decided to continue their programme, without changing their professional agenda today.Source Via
