Over 300 Amsterdam businesses will fly the rainbow flag on Saturday to spread the message that senseless violence against the LGBTQ community must stop. This follows drag queen Monique de la Fressange being assaulted in the city late last month, Het Parool reports.
The A'DAM tower in Amsterdam was robbed in broad daylight on Sunday afternoon. Two men managed to get hold of the safe containing the daily cash flow and ran off with it, despite the fact that it weighs about 50 kilograms, Het Parool reports.
Sander Groet, owner of the tower, called it a brutal robbery. "The safe stood in a room on the 16th floor where our personnel walk in and out", he said to the newspaper. "It contained particularly our cash flow and fee our large safe is embedded into a wall. They knew exactly where to be."
Fugitive terrorism suspect Abid Tabaouni visited Amsterdam in March, according to a photo he posted on his Facebook page. The photo shows him posing before the IJ with the Eye film museum and the A'DAM Tower in the background
