Fallujah am Nordmeer

The siege in The Hague is continuing, and is eating up all Dutch bandwidth.


Dutch military special forces laid siege to a house in The Hague after three police officers were injured in a hand-grenade blast during an anti-terrorist raid. Authorities closed the airspace over the city to civilian flights.

Police evacuated the Laakkwartier neighborhood following the raid, at 2:45 a.m. local time today. The grenade was thrown from the house. Suspects remained on the premises, the national crime prosecution unit said in an e-mail, without saying if there'd been arrests. Amsterdam's Schiphol airport stayed open.

UPDATE: All clear, but no information given by the police except that two "suspects" have been arrested.
