    1,894 suicides in 2016

    The number of suicide deaths has been on the rise in recent years, but related to population size and composition has remained at the same level since 2013, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) reports based on newly released figures.

    Last year (2016) 1,894 people took their own lives, i.e. 23 more than in 2015 and equal to an average 5.2 suicides on a daily basis. Taking into account population growth and ageing, the suicide rate is at the level of the early 1990s (11.1 per 100 thousand residents). In the Netherlands, twice as many men as women commit suicide; the totals for 2016 were 1,279 men and 615 women.


    Most suicides in middle age bracket, increase among over-60s
    Four in every ten suicides are committed by middle-aged people. Last year, the number of suicides in this age group (40-59) declined by 5 percent relative to 2015. There were mainly more suicide deaths in the older age group (60 years and up), where the number has increased since 2012,to 647 in 2016. One-third of all suicides are committed by people aged 60 or over. Among those under the age of 20, the suicide death toll was 48 in both 2015 and 2016.

    In the 10-39 age bracket, mortality is relatively low: 1.4 percent of total annual mortality. Suicide accounts for nearly one-quarter of these deaths (463 out of a total of 2,031). More 10 to 39-year-olds die from suicide than from cancer (435), fatal road accidents (168) or cardiovascular diseases (161). In the 40-59 age bracket, suicide is the most common cause of death after cancer and cardiovascular diseases. From the age of 60 onwards, more people die from natural causes and, with advancing age, death from suicide becomes rarer.


    Most suicides in Groningen, fewest in Zuid-Holland
    In relative terms, the province of Groningen has the highest number of suicides. The rate per 100 thousand residents was 14.7 in 2016, versus 11.1 as the nationwide average. The provinces of Friesland and Limburg also show relatively high rates. Proportionally, the province of Zuid-Holland has the lowest number of suicides.

    The suicide rate in the four largest Dutch municipalities is below the national average. The municipality of Utrecht had the lowest rate among the four at 8.2 suicides per 100 thousand residents.


    Lowest suicide rates in Southern Europe
    The Dutch suicide rate (11.1 per 100 thousand) in 2014 was almost equal to the EU average (11.3 per 100 thousand). The most recent figures show that Lithuania has the highest rate (31.5 per 100 thousand residents), followed by Hungary and Latvia. The neighbouring countries also have higher suicide rates than the Netherlands.
    Suicide rates in most countries in Southern Europe are remarkably low. Cyprus (4.5 per 100 thousand) and Greece (5 per 100 thousand) have the lowest rates, followed by Italy and the United Kingdom.

    Investigation into fatal beating of a Dutch tourist

    The National Police are hunting five men who beat a 34-year-old Dutch tourist unconscious and who died as a result of his injuries.

    Around five o'clock on Friday morning, Wouter Van Lujin was spotted by a passing motorist in front of an old warehouse by the edge of the road along the Cami de la Milana near the Repsol petrol station in Son Ferriol, Palma. The driver took him to Son Espases Hospital, where he was rushed into intensive care. He died shortly afterwards. He had suffered extensive and multiple injuries.

    The National Police murder squad immediately opened an investigation and began sifting through the images captured by CCTV cameras located along the stretch of road between Son Ferriol and Son Banya. One of the cameras picked up images of a group of between four and five young men leaping over a wall and fleeing from the direction where the body was found.

    While officers spent the day going over other video footage, others were at the scene combing the area in search of evidence. Police said that the detention of the attackers is imminent due to the video footage and items found at the scene.

    An open mind is being kept as to what exactly happened and why, but police are not ruling out the possibility that the victim had gone to Son Banya, the shanty town that is notorious for its drug trade.

    Dutch Farmers Against the Empire: ZAR Mausers of the Boer War

    When the intercepted Jameson Raid made it clear to the governments of the ZAR (Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek; South African Republic) and the Orange Free State that war with Britain was imminent, a hasty armaments program was undertaken by both countries. The ZAR went looking for small arms, and wound up buying a tiny number of Krag-Jorgensens, a lot of Steyr Guedes single shot rifles, and about 28,000 modern Mauser bolt action repeaters.

    The Boer military system at that time (the Second Anglo-Boer War would run from 1899 to 1902) was based on a universal civilian militia. Every male citizen of the Republic was required to present himself for military service when needed, supplying his own horse, rifle, ammunition, and basic ration supply. These were farming nations, with neither the industrial infrastructure nor the wealth to maintain an arms industry or a standing army. While the kommandos were sufficient for defending again minor border intrusions, they would be severely stressed by a real war.

    Because there was no military standard for arms, the men constituting the ZAR's army were armed with a mixture of all the rifles types available at that time - really anything that a traveling salesman might have brought to the area in the past couple decades. Sniders, British muskets, Kropatscheks, early Mausers, Vetterlis, and more. When the ZAR government purchased its Mauser rifles and carbines form Loewe/DWM, they were then sold at cost to individual Boers as an opportunity to improve and standardize their arms. Men who could not afford to buy one of the Mausers were loaned one by the government. One interested consequence of this entirely private rifle ownership was that a great many Boer rifles were personalized with carvings of names, battles, and decorations. The usual military taboo on modifying Army property did not apply to a Boer's personal weapon.

    ZAR Mausers have no specific crest nor any mention of the country's name marked on their stocks or receivers, making them difficult to identify by the casual historical firearms enthusiast. Today we will explain the characteristic features of these scarce artifacts of a mostly-forgotten war.
