Bungled attack on Dutch Royal Family; Four Dead, Several Injured + UPDATE

In the Dutch town of Apeldoorn a man attempted to crash his car into a bus carrying the Dutch Crown Prince, his wife and other members of their family. Queen Beatrix was not aboard the bus. Four people were killed when the man drove his car at considerable speed through the crowd. Five people, three of them children, were critically injured and a number of others suffered lesser injuries. The car did not reach the royal bus, but came to a standstill against a statue when the driver lost control over his vehicle. The driver, who was also severely wounded, is in custody. The car came within some 40 yards of the bus. The royal bus tour was part of Queen’s Day activities, a national holiday celebrating the bond between the Netherlands and the House of Orange. Immediately after the attack, the royal family was driven away under heightened security.
