Two letter bombs went off in two Dutch cities early on Wednesday, local police confirmed.
One parcel exploded in the capital Amsterdam after being received in the mail room of a company in the northwestern area of the city, at 8.00 a.m. local time (0700 GMT).
None were injured in the attack, Amsterdam police announced on Twitter.
A second blast hit Kerkrade, southern-most province of Limburg.
“A letter package exploded at a postal sorting company on Wiebachstraat in Kerkrade around 8:30 am [0730 GMT]. No one was hurt,” said the Limburg police on Twitter.
The building was evacuated and police investigations are ongoing, it added.
“It is still unknown whether there is a connection with the explosion of a letter package this morning in Amsterdam,” said the Limburg police.
