TERROR FEARS=> Dutch Concert Venue Evacuated After Bus Filled With Gas Canisters Found

Hundreds of lives may have been saved after Dutch police found a bus packed with gas canisters near a Rotterdam rock venue before a concert. The bus has Spanish plates and was tipped off by Spanish police. The driver has been detained by Dutch police. 

Express UK reports:

Police officers wearing bulletproof vests descended on the Maassilo venue in Rotterdam while an anti-terror unit was also on-site, according to local media.

The gig was cancelled following a tip-off from Spanish police, and the mayor of Rotterdam has now confirmed a small bus with Spanish number plates as “gas bottles” was found near the venue.

Dutch police officers stopped the driver of the bus in Rotterdam and have taken him into custody.

A tweet by staff at the Maassilo venue claims authorities ordered the cancellation of tonight’s gig.

Dutch media claimed that police received a tip-off that a terror attack was being planned for the Allah-Las’ concert and canceled the show as a precaution.

The Maassilo is an exhibition venue located in central Rotterdam, with capacity for 1,000 people.

The venue was evacuated before the concert was due to start, and images on social media show a number of concertgoers stood around outside while officers in bulletproof vests patrol the area.
