Police have shot a suspect, who has allegedly stabbed two people at Amsterdam Central Station. The victims of the stabbing and the suspect of the attack have since been taken to hospital.

The Western Tunnel has now closed at the station, but both the Eastern and the Central tunnel is still open. All trains were temporarily stopped, however, all trains are now running apart from where the incident took place: at platform 4 and 5.

Police are still at the scene and so far it is unknown how hurt the victims are and the motive behind this attack.
