Another house in Vlaardingen has been firebombed in the early hours of Tuesday morning, police have said.

It is the second night in a row that a home in the Koekoekstraat in the Zuid-Holland town was targeted. Earlier, the elderly couple next door to this morning’s blast, managed to douse the flames caused by the attack on their house. No one was hurt in either incident.

Vlaardingen had been the scene of numerous explosions and fires targeting buildings and cars owned by a Vlaardingen plumber but police said so far they do not think the explosions are connected.
