Suspected letter bombs hit two Dutch buildings


Suspected letter bombs have caused explosions at two postal depots in the Netherlands.

No injuries were reported in either blast.

One went off at a mailroom in Amsterdam and the other at a post-sorting company in the city of Kerkrade early on Wednesday.

It comes as Dutch police investigate a spate of letter bombs that previously targetted a hotel, a gas station, a garage, a real estate agent and a bill collection service.
