Delft – In the early morning of Monday, September 4, an explosion took place at a bakery on Papsouwselaan. At the building next door, a supermarket, a piece of explosive was also found that had not exploded. Police are investigating the case and are appealing for witnesses to come forward. Several people were working in the bakery at the time of the explosion.
Around 02:50 a piece of explosive was probably thrown in the direction of the front of the store, after which it exploded. Miraculously, no one was injured. There was significant damage to the building, however.
