Rotterdam concert by Allah-Las canceled due to terror threat
August 24 , 2017
The concert by Los Angeles, California based rock band Allah-Las was canceled at the last moment after the Rotterdam police received a terror warning. On Wednesday, Rotterdam police detained the driver of a van carrying gas tanks around Maassilo, the venue of the concert. The Spanish driver of the van was interrogated by the Rotterdam Police as told by the Dutch city's mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb. The officials are denying any possible link between Rotterdam's terror threat and Barcelona Terror Attack. Rotterdam's mayor even said that its too early to link the Spanish van terror attack incident with the terror threat; in a hastily arranged press conference. Images of Police officers in body armours and members of the band leaving Maassilo, were shown by the Dutch television.
