Dutch military police on Friday shot and wounded a man armed with a knife, who burst into their office at Amsterdam's busy Schiphol airport, police told AFP.

"This afternoon a man came into the office of the Marechaussee (military police) here at Schiphol and threatened my colleagues with a knife," said police spokesman Dennis Muller.

"He was shot in the leg and taken to hospital in Amsterdam."

The incident triggered panic on the airport's vast plaza, which is criss-crossed by thousands of people every day making their way to and from the departures and arrivals halls.

Silly Dutch police! If you're going to open fire on someone, it's better to do it with a gun...

Actually the perp picked about the only place in he entire Netherlands where he would likely meet an armed response.

At the airport. At the office of the guys who patrol the airport with assault rifles.

"He was shot in the leg and taken to hospital in Amsterdam."

I don't approve of the leg shot. Whatever information he might provide in questioning is more than outweighed by the catch-and-release drawbacks. When you can legally shoot a terrorist, you should permanently solve the problem.
