Prime Minister Mark Roth said he was “very concerned” about the incident. While the Dutch radio confirmed that tight security measures were taken near the headquarters of the government in Hague.

The Dutch city of Utrecht had seen a fire shortly before, wounding seven people.

The bomber was able to escape by car, while counter terrorism forces were pushed into the area, the authorities ordered the schools to close, especially as the attacker was still at large, the Dutch media reported.

The attack killed at least one person and wounded several people in Netherlands, while police were looking into possible terrorist motives.
