Man with knife at Amsterdam airport is not terror case

Man with knife at Amsterdam airport is not terror case

The area immediately surrounding the incident was closed to the public, but the airport was functioning normally, Verberkt said. No other injuries have been reported.

The shocking footage from the scene shows armed cops rushing through the airport to apprehend the armed man, as the building was placed on lockdown.

A man threatening travelers with a knife was shot today at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport.

"The man threatened with a knife and the military police shot him", police spokesman Stan Verberkt told Reuters news agency. The suspect is described by police as a 29-year-old man from The Hague. "He was injured and has been taken into custody".

Police say the man had made threats with the knife.




He said "the circumstances are telling us that it has nothing to do with terrorism".

The motives and the condition of the suspect remain unknown, but local media report that he had been acting aggressively and broke a window.

Later they issued another tweet adding "The suspect was overpowered, detained and taken away".

It was not clear what effect the security situation was having on flights but parts of the airport behind the check-in area were not evacuated. Air traffic has not been affected.

Schiphol is one of Europe's busiest airports and Friday is one of its busiest days of the week.
