Explosion damages COVID-19 testing center in the Netherlands

An explosion struck a COVID-19 testing center in a small town in the Netherlands on Wednesday, shattering several windows in what police believe was an intentional attack, officials said.

The early morning blast in Bovenkarspel, some 40 miles north of the capital, Amsterdam, was caused by a metal cylinder left outside the building, according to Agence France-Presse, which cited police. No one was injured.

The incident comes weeks after another testing center was burned down during violent riots across the country against a coronavirus curfew.

“Police were called at 6:55 a.m. by a security guard from the corona test center to say that an explosion had taken place. He had heard a loud bang and then saw that several windows of the building had broken,” a police statement said.

“Outside the building was a metal cylinder that had exploded. No one was injured in the incident.” Source
