THE HAGUE — A 29-year-old Briton was arrested today (Jan 1) at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport after he claimed he was carrying explosives, prompting the temporary evacuation of a departure lounge, Dutch media reported.
“We first checked if the man had anything on him … then we searched his bags with dogs. We found nothing and the situation returned to normal,” a police spokesman told Dutch radio.
Media reports showed pictures of the unnamed man splayed face down on the floor with a policeman’s weapon trained on him before he was escorted away.
The reports added the lounge was cleared as a precaution for some 20 minutes. AFP
