The police found homemade explosives while searching a house on Söderblomplaats in Rotterdam on Thursday. The house was searched as part of an ongoing investigation, the police said on Twitter.

The explosives consisted of dangerous fireworks, bottles and rods of iron, according to NOS. A police spokesperson told NOS that there are currently no indications that the explosives are linked to terrorism.

The police did not say whether any arrests were made. Defense's explosive removal team removed the explosives and will detonate them elsewhere.
