Dutch poll raises immigration issue

Immigration and integration remain key issues ahead of upcoming Netherlands election.

    Voters in one of Europe's most tolerant countries are heading to the polls soon.

    The Netherlands is renowned for its liberal politics and open-minded attitudes towards everything from drugs to education to healthcare.
