Amsterdam Flights Delayed Due to Bomb Threat

Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam saw the delay of dozens of flights due to a bomb threat.  A man claimed to have a bomb and locked himself in a washroom.  This caused the evacuation of two terminals and once the authorities moved in and spoke with the man, it became clear that he had no explosives on him.  However, despite this and the speed of the evacuation of the terminals, it took much longer to re-open them and get the schedule back to normal.

Rob van Kapel, a spokesman for the military police, said that the suspect did not pose a threat, but according to security protocols the bomb squad searched the entire building.  A criminal investigation has been launched, but it is too early to say what charges the man will face or what his mental state might be in light of his action.
