Royal bus attack: driver was a ‘quiet man’

The 38-year-old man arrested for driving his car into the crowd watching a royal parade in Apeldoorn on Thursday, killing five people, was described as a ‘quiet’ man by neighbours.

The Telegraaf reports that the man, Karst T, worked as a security guard but lost his job several weeks ago.
He had given up his house in the Gelderland village of Huissen because he could no longer afford the rent, the Telegraaf said. New tenants were due to move into the property on May 1.
