Schiphol airport: Dutch military police investigating 'suspicious situation' on plane

"We are now investigating a suspicious situation aboard an aircraft at Schiphol", said the Marechaussee, a branch of the Dutch military tasked with protecting airports and borders. The details of the situation are still unclear.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told a meeting of his VVD party he may be called away because of the situation at Schiphol, according to the UK's Guardian.

"In a plane (set to fly) from Amsterdam to Madrid tonight an alarm was accidentally activated which set off safety protocols at the airport", it said.

It then soon transpired that the incident was a false alarm and that the pilot had pressed the emergency code by accident.
