Dutch Police arrest three men.

AS TENSIONS mount following the attacks on the Belgium capital, news reports from Amsterdam of gunshots heighten anxieties across an already frayed Europe.  

Dutch Police have confirmed that warning shots were fired in the capital before a dramatic city centre high speed car chase ensued culminating in three arrests at the central station in Amsterdam.

As the police refused to comment on the reason for the arrests, speculation is rife over whether they are in any way connected to the earlier Brussels attacks. 

The Dutch Police’s official Twitter account, tweeted that the country’s border with Belgium will be “intensively guarded for as long as necessary”.

These reports come as Belgian security continue to hunt for a third terrorist suspected of taking part in the twin bombings at the airport. It is believed his explosive failed to detonate, and he remains at large and could have fled to Holland.
