A man wielding a knife was shot by Dutch police on Friday at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.
Officers shot the man in the leg after he threatened staff with the knife.
The military police have since taken him into custody before transporting him to a hospital.
“The man threatened with a knife and the military police shot him,” spokesman Stan Verberkt said. “He was injured and has been taken into custody.”
Verberkt said the incident is not being treated as an extremist attack. He told The Associated Press that "the circumstances are telling us that it has nothing to do with terrorism."
No one else was injured in the incident and no details of the assailant’s condition were released.
The immediate area around the incident was closed to the public, but the airport was functioning normally, Verberkt said.
