Police probe terrorism as motive for Amsterdam stabbings

Police quickly arrived at the scene with video images showing police ordering the suspect in English to "stay down" after he had been shot.

"A suspect has been shot after a stabbing incident at Amsterdam Central Station", Dutch police said on Twitter, indicating that the station had been evacuated and closed off to all rail traffic.

Police investigators in Amsterdam included an extremist attack as a possible motive for the stabbings of two people at a busy railway station Friday as authorities in the Dutch capital reported that a suspect shot by police is an Afghan citizen.

All three have been taken to hospital for treatment.

However, police soon afterwards issued an update to say there was "no talk" of a complete evacuation and that only two platforms were closed to passengers.

Security officials and police officers stood guard wearing high-visibility vests.

Central Station is a busy entry and exit point for visitors to the Dutch capital, with regular trains linking it to the city's Schiphol Airport.

Friday is a particularly busy time for the station, with numerous tourists arriving for weekend trips.
