Deportations down, violence up

Some 11,870 people were deported from the Netherlands last year. Of these, over 2,000 had military police escorts, according to an investigation by tv current affairs show Nova. The two-part programme (the first will be broadcast tonight) says that while the number of deportations is going down, the amount of violence involved is on the increase.
