"Situation safe" at Schiphol, man threatening with knife shot by police


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

"Man at Schiphol shot at by the military police, after he made threats with a knife". Situation secure with best rates guaranteed.

The cavernous plaza, where trains arrive underground and where people can also stop to shop or eat in a large commercial area, was briefly evacuated.

The man was arrested and then taken to an Amsterdam hospital as police began investigations at the scene and travelers who had been ushered outside were allowed back into the airport.

The tweet from Dutch police stated that the "Situation is under control".

Update 5.30pm: Military police said the events are not being treated as a terror incident.

"He was injured and has been taken into custody".

"We. have many questions", Verberkt said.

There are no further details about the suspect or his motives as yet.

But the airport tweeted later that the plaza was "reopened to the public again. A small part is still closed down", it said.

"Air traffic is experiencing no further consequences", it added.

Dramatic video shows four armed officers with guns rushing towards a Starbucks in the airport terminal before shots are heard.

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