One person has been arrested after an anti-tank weapon was fired at an office block in Amsterdam’s Sloterdijk business district on Thursday night.
Eyewitnesses report hearing an enormous bang but no-one was injured and one window in the building was broken by the missile.
The launcher was found in the vicinity and removed for forensic tests.
Police say they have no idea why this particular building was targeted but that the suspect had cut through surveillance cameras before launching the missile.
According to the Telegraaf, the office block, ONE20, is a multi-tenant building. One company based there is Pijper Media, which publishes magazines like Panorama, Nieuwe Revu, Playboy and Marie Claire.
