A train from Schiphol was stopped at Leiden Central Station on Tuesday night due to reports of a suspicious situation. It turned out to be a false alarm, but one person was arrested for questioning.

The station's rear platform was closed for investigation for a short time. The train was searched, but nothing suspicious was found, AD reports.

It is unclear whether the arrested person is in anyway connected to the suspicious situation at Schiphol on Tuesday night. There too arrests were made and part of the airport was evacuated.
