Five Officials Taken Hostage in Almelo

On Monday the owner of a restaurant in Almelo took hostage Alderman Bert Kuiper and four officials in the municipality building. He was able to do this due to lax security measures in the municipality. After five hours of negotiations he released the hostages unharmed and left his weapon behind. The attack was probably related to difficulties in receiving business permits.
