Fewer Dutch fear terrorist attacks

The number of people afraid of a terrorist attack in the Netherlands has fallen dramatically in the last two years from 55% in 2005 to 36% today, according to Maurice de Hond poll quoted in today’s Volkskrant.

Around 33% of the Dutch are confident that the government is able to protect them from a terrorist attack. In 2002 and 2003 only 20% believed this to be the case.
