At 11:30 p.m. the fire brigade had to respond to a possible car fire, but it soon became apparent that there had been another explosion on Galjootstraat.

An explosive went off at a porch on Henri Dunantstraat in Amsterdam West on Saturday and Sunday night around 00.30. The force of the explosion destroyed the mailboxes. On Saturday and Sunday night around 4:45 am, an explosive was detonated at the front door of a porch house on Haspelstraat. The windows and front door were destroyed.

“Explosions are disturbing”
Response from police chief Frank Paauw: “The number of explosions so far are disturbing. The explosions are dangerous and have a huge impact on the sense of security of Amsterdam residents. As the police, we work day and night on this form of crime. On the other hand, little information is shared with us, which really needs to change. My call to all Amsterdam residents is to share information with us to make our city safer together.”
