And finally… Pig heads left on Netherlands construction site

People working on the construction of a large asylum centre in Enschede were met with a gruesome sight on Wednesday morning. The severed heads of 12 pigs were scattered around the site sometime on Tuesday night.

According to newspaper AD, nine of the pig heads were placed on the fence around the site and the other three were thrown on the ground. There was also a plastic bag full of blood, believed to be the bag the heads were carried in.

A photo of the heads was spread on Twitter along with a message reading: “If democracy fails, people become angry and desperate. Welcome to the hell of Eschmarkerveld”.
