Mayor of Haren Rob Bats announces his resignation during the council meeting on the investigation report on March 12, 2013 in Haren. Police and the mayor of a sleepy Dutch town 'failed' in their handling of a riot triggered when thousands attended a party after receiving a Facebook invitation meant to be private, a probe found Friday. Some 4,000 revellers descended onto the northern town of Haren in September after a local girl accidentally posted a public invitation for her 16th birthday party on the social network. The soiree descended into chaos, with uninvited party-goers pelting police officers with rocks, bottles, flower pots and even bicycles, shops looted and chairs set on fire throughout the night.
