UTRECHT SHOOTING Three dead after attack on tram


Three people have been killed following a shooting on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht, the city’s mayor says.

Nine others were injured in the incident, which police say appears to be a terrorist attack.

Police are looking for a 37-year-old Turkish man named as Gokmen Tanis and have warned people not to approach him.

Schools have closed and security has been increased while counter-terrorism police work to find the gunman. The tram attack happened at about 10:45 local time (09:45 GMT) and one witness told local media that “a man started shooting wildly”.
