Amsterdam police chief concerned

Yesterday, Amsterdam police chief Frank Paauw expressed his concern about the number of explosions in Amsterdam. Last weekend an explosive device went off at six buildings, causing no injuries.

“The explosions are dangerous and have a huge impact on the sense of security of Amsterdam residents,” Paauw said in a statement yesterday. “As the police, we work day and night on this form of crime. On the other hand, little information is shared with us, that really needs to change.” He urged Amsterdam residents to share information.
