A terrorist threat was reportedly made against Amsterdam Thursday morning, Mayor Eberhard van der Laan announced, NL Times reported. The threat has since been scaled back, according to the mayor, and more information is expected to be released later in the day.
The police, judiciary and city government took measures immediately after learning of the threat, and an investigation was launched in order to identify where the threat originated from, NL Times reported. Van der Laan would not comment on what measures were taken.
A bomb threat was also made Thursday morning against a school in Amsterdam, Het Parool reported. The bomb threat appeared to be a false alarm, according to Het Parool, and it was unclear whether there was a connection between the terrorist threat and the bomb threat.
The Islamic State group has reportedly been targeting other parts of Europe to execute a terror attack styled after the one in Paris last November that left at least 130 people dead.
