As violence escalates in the Netherlands following the killing of filmmaker Theo van Gogh, Dutch police on an anti-terrorist raid find themselves the target of dangerous weapons:| |
Three Dutch police officers have been wounded in an explosion during an anti-terror raid on a house in The Hague...Enough is enough. The Dutch parliament needs to enact an Assault Hand Grenade Ban, pronto. If Assault Hand Grenades are made illegal, nobody will have them. Especially not law-abiding citizens like the ones in the raided house.
"At the moment of assault, a hand grenade was thrown at the arrest team," said Hague Police Chief Gerard Bouwman. "It exploded and several officers were hurt."
