Police Escort for Ambulances Entering Asylum-Seeker Centers

Ambulances summoned to the asylum seeker center in Zaandam will be escorted by police.  This was decided after police and ambulance workers were attacked by asylum seekers.  They had come to the center because a man had hurt himself and some said he had intended to commit suicide.  The situation was so unsafe that the ambulance workers and police left the center without the wounded man.  He was later brought outside by residents of the center so that he could be taken for medical treatment.
