AMSTERDAM, Nov 30 (Reuters) – Ahmed Marcouch, the leader of an immigrant district in Amsterdam, said on Friday the key to quelling the kind of riots seen in Paris this week was to isolate troublemakers, involve parents and build community relations. Marcouch, who moved to Amsterdam from Morocco aged 10, was credited with quickly cooling the situation by visiting the victims’ parents and bringing together community leaders, youth workers, imams and police.
