This morning, the Dutch police arrested two people at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport after explosive materials were found in their car.
The Dutch military police (Marechaussee) reports that it concerns a man and a woman. The police takes into account that the explosive material was intended for a smash-and-grab-job or a ram raid.
The suspects were driving around the airport when their car caught the attention of the police. They escorted them to a parking lot at Schiphol. Subsequently, the vehicle was searched by the bomb squad (Explosieven Opruimingsdienst Defensie or EOD).
The area was temporarily closed. A spokeswoman for the military police later said that the situation was under control.
