Jewish restaurant in Amsterdam targeted with fake bomb

The suspicious package left outside a Jewish restaurant in Amsterdam, sparking a major security scare, did not contain explosives, police confirmed.

The Amstelveenseweg was sealed off and locals urged to leave the area while explosives experts checked out the box, which was lightly sealed with tape and had a wire sticking out. It had been placed by the main door of the kosher eatery, which was not open at the time.
