Rotterdam mayor appeals to Dutch Turks to stay calm in coup aftermath
Rotterdam's mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has appealed to the Turkish community in the Netherlands 'to stay calm' following Friday night's failed military coup.
The Telegraaf reported that windows had been smashed at cultural centres in Rotterdam and Zaandam, and that supporters of president Recep Tayyip Erdogan were circulating 'boycott lists' of Turkish businesses in Amsterdam that were critical of the president.
'What has happened in Turkey is already bad enough,' the paper quoted Aboutaleb as saying. There are some 500,000 people of Turkish origin in the Netherlands.
