Explosion rocks Limburg street

An explosive device has damaged several homes and one car on the Ruitersweg in Susteren, Limburg on Tuesday night. Mayor Jos Hessels announced this Wednesday. 

According to a neighbor, a member of the notorious Bandidos motorcycle club lives in one of the damaged homes. The mayor likens the explosion to the March attacks on the home of Harrie Ramakers, president of the Bandidos in Nieuwstadt. "But that doesn't say anything yet", his first reaction was.

The mayor spoke to the community on the street Wednesday. He notes that they are shocked and full of disbelief. He hopes to be able to arrange their safety as soon as possible, the Algemeen Dagblad reports.

Police say that two homes are damaged. The mayor claims these are five. Most damage is to walls and windows. The street has been blocked off and police are investigating. The Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit has also been called, the police says.
