Netherlands Linesman Killed After Being Beaten by Youth Players

Dec. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Richard Nieuwenhuizen, a Dutch linesman who had been assisting in his son’s soccer match, died yesterday after being beaten and kicked by youth players.

“You can’t believe this could happen, that kids of 15 or 16 like are playing football, you come to watch and see something like that,” Marcel Oost, chairman of Buitenboys from Almere, 13 miles (21 kilometers) north of Amsterdam, told national broadcaster NOS yesterday.

Nieuwenhuizen was a member of the club. The incident happened Dec. 2 when the Buitenboys B1 team played against a team from Amsterdam, Nieuw-Sloten. The police arrested three Nieuw-Sloten players, according to a statement from the police yesterday.
