Violent protests break out in Europe over vaccine mandates, lockdowns:
Violent protests have broken out against COVID-19 vaccine mandates and lockdowns across Europe amid new tough rules to curb winter waves of the virus.
Demonstrators angry about the new measures gathered in Austria, Croatia, Italy, Northern Ireland, the French territory of Guadeloupe and the Netherlands to protest the moves.
In the Netherlands, a second night of riots broke out Saturday over a partial lockdown, one day after police opened fire on people protesting the rules in Rotterdam.
Protesters hurled fireworks at police and set fire to bicycles in The Hague, as cops used horses, dogs and batons to chase the crowds away, the BBC reported.
Police said a rock was hurled through the window of an ambulance carrying a patient.
At least five officers were injured, with one taken away by ambulance with a knee injury, during the melees, officials said. --->READ MORE HERE

WATCH: Europe Erupts Against Lockdowns, Vax Mandates with Protests in Rome, Vienna, Netherlands
Mass demonstrations erupted across Europe on Saturday with protests being staged in Vienna, Rome, and The Netherlands as governments across the continent reimpose lockdown restrictions and introduce draconian vaccine measures amid rising cases of the Chinese coronavirus.
An estimated 38,000 people marched on the Wiener Ring on Saturday in Vienna against the imposition of new lockdown restrictions. Organisers of the event claimed that as many as 100,000 people turned up for the protests.
The Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung reported that there were at least ten arrests during the protest, as demonstrators clashed with police, who were reportedly attacked with fireworks.
The protest in Vienna came after the recently installed Chancellor of Austria, Alexander Schallenberg, imposed a nationwide lockdown and announced that starting in February, vaccinations will become mandatory on pain of fines and possible prison sentences. --->LOTS MORE HERE
