The mobile units intervened as several hundred people demonstrated against sanitary regulations on 18 Septemberplein. After the protesters were surrounded, the police deployed a water cannon.
The atmosphere was tense. The demonstrators threw firecrackers at the police and challenged the police, who used the batons.
Protesters also invaded a tunnel near the station. Some of the demonstrators then returned to the square via an alternative path.
The police are present en masse and call on the population to avoid the center of Eindhoven.
