Extra measures in Eindhoven after Utrecht incident

Measures were taken after a possible terrorist attack in Utrecht. These extra security measures include more police at approach roads, Eindhoven train stations and mosques.

Police took these measures, after a possible attack in Utrecht this morning. In Utrecht, several people in a tram were injured after shots were fired. The shooting incident took place inside the vehicle.

Utrecht police do not discount the attack may have been terrorist-motivated. According to a witness talking to NU.nl, a man suddenly started shooting wildly.

At the moment, police are still hunting for the attacker. Schools, mosques and Utrecht university are closed.

Authorities speak of a raised threat-level. In many places throughout the country, the security level was raised to an “‘increased state of allertness” and at Utrecht to the highest level. All political parties have stopped campaigning for Wednesday’s election.

In Eindhoven, the extra security means mosques, NS stations and approach roads are now under higher surveillance. Police officers involved in the extra security measures also wear bulletproof vests.
