Dutch seek to restore security amid looting on St MartinDutch troops were fanning out across part of the hurricane-hit island of St Martin on Friday as shots were heard and officials admitted there had been some looting. “The situation is serious,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said when asked about looting, adding authorities were being hampered in their efforts to deal with it as communications were cut off when Hurricane Irma roared through on Wednesday. “Shots have been fired, but not in a structured fashion,” Major General Richard Oppelaar, the commander of the Marine Corps, told reporters in The Hague.
