Horrible incidence in Appeldoorn this afternoon when a man who wanted to ram the bus in which the Royals were touring the town created a blood bath.

In his attempt he deliberately drove through the masses of people who were there to cheer the Queen, killing 4 and injuring 16.

Another victim died later in hospital and 13 are in critical condition in hospital.

Appeldoorn immediately cancelled all festivities and other towns and cities followed suit.

Here in Amsterdam everything went very quiet for a long time this afternoon but it seems the Mayor decided there were too many people in the city to cancel the party.

Hi Kris,

They sure take their celebrating serious across the pond.

In the Trailer Park, Billy Bob may drink a little too much moonshine and dance with farm animals, then shoot off some talking and not nice words. But Nuttin like this stuff.

Hope your having a great day Herrad,

Killing 4 & wounding 16 and the party must go on? I think the Mayor is dreadfully wrong about that.....~Mary

Hi Mary,

About 300.000 had come to Amsterdam thats why the party went on, it was very subdued no more boats with music on the canals after the news got around.

How disturbing, I hope it is calm for everyone now, and that you rest well.

See you in the morning

Hi Stephany,

Everything was calm, Appeldoorn is in bits but seem to be comforting each other.

I rested very well slept until 10.45.
