Dutch newspapers and news channels report today that a bomb was found in a train at the train station of the city of Den Bosch, in the South of the Netherlands. Experts are supposedly trying to dismantle the explosive device at this moment.
Dutch news channel the NOS says that the bomb was found after passengers alerted railroad personnel that a suspicious man was moving in and around the train. When personnel tried to talk to the men he said he had planted a bomb in the train.
One witness said: First, he suddenly asked for a cigarette. Excuse me, he said, Id like to have a cigarette. After that he disappeared for a short while, but returned within a matter of minutes. He shouted God is great [not sure whether he shouted God is great in Dutch or in Arabic - Allahu Akbar - and Dutch media simply translated it into Dutch themselves] and I have a bomb!
A bomb squad moved in and found the explosives, the national railroad company (NS) says. Police havent confirmed the report yet.
