Police in Weesp just south east of Amsterdam have arrested three teenage boys for threatening primary schools in the town.
One is 13, another 14. The age of the third boy, arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning, was not made public.
The youths, whose threats caused a great deal of anxiety in the town and led to police stepping up school surveillance, were identified from security camera footage broadcast on a tv crime show on Tuesday night.
