‘Homemade bomb’ at Dutch mosque

8 November 2010 General No Comment Email This Post Email This Post

Muslim worshippers pray in the prayer hall of the Polder Mosque in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

A suspicious package has forced police officers to evacuate Muslim worshippers from a mosque in Netherlands, according to officials.

The parcel was found at a mosque located on the Bella Vista street in Almelo town in eastern Netherlands on Wednesday morning.

Police announced later that the suspicious package was a homemade bomb and the mosque was opened to people on Wednesday afternoon.

There has been no information about who was behind the attack, according to police.

The mosque incident in Netherlands happens as embassies of Bulgaria, Germany, Chile, Mexico, Belgium and the Netherlands were reportedly hit by a wave of parcel bomb threats last week in Greece.

The European states had tightened security measures following the threats, halting international mail and parcel deliveries for several hours.
