The Hague.

While festivals are being held to celebrate our freedom a man stabbed 3 people infront of a restaurant.
2 bystanders and a man on a bicycle, the wounded have been brought to a nearby hospital, none of them is in direct danger of dying.
While doing that the man (dressed in typical islamic clothing) shouted Allah Akhbar.....
However according to the police and the meir the 31 year old man (how surprising, a Syrian refugee) was only a mentally disturbed man.
Now where did we hear that before......

May 16,
New reports showed up with information that the police was warned about possible terrorist actions by the arrested man.
Nothing has been done with the report, a human error according to the justice department.
meanwhile everybody still speak about a "confused" man which has become a synonime for terrorist actions in the Netherlands.

The main suspect is an Iraqi man aged 34, he was allready convicted in 2017 because he wanted to go to Syria to help Daesh.

Well,

It was a question of time when we would get hit by serious terrorism.
Today at 10.45 a Turkish man opened fire at innocent people inside a tram.
He left 3 dead and 6 wounded, 3 of them seriously. One of the severe wounded (man aged 74) died at the 28th making him the 4th deadly casualty.
The deadly victims are a 19 year old girl, a man aged 29 and a man aged 49. A Soccertrainer and father of 3 children.
After his cowardly act the killer fled in a red Clio.
Police reacted quickley, soon the car was found and secured and a house (probably the suspects) was searched.
He was arrested by the police around 18.00 after they tracked him down when he wired money from his bank account using a friends phone.
2 brothers were arrested but have been released by now, a 3rd suspect is still in custody.
Its not clear why they have been arrested but they might have helped the killer in some way.
All activities for the coming elections have been postponed for the day.
Security level rose to 5, which is the highest level.

At several places railway stations, mosques and schools have extra security.
