Queensday parade attack

The Column with the Royal Family was nearly hit

A black Suzuki Swift rammed and killed several bystanders in an incident during the Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) parade in Apeldoorn. The vehicle drove through a crowd waving at the Royal Column. This happened at around 11:50 local time.

News media report that the vehicle was chauffeured by a 38 years old White Male.

The driver was arrested and is in hospital. The authorities say this is not at terrorist attack, but rather the work of a loner.
