The N11 between Alphen aan den Rijn and Hazerswoude-Rijndijk has been closed for a short time on the night of Saturday to Sunday, to all traffic. The reason was that there was a cow loose on the road, reports Omroep West on Sunday. 

After the emergency services arrived, it took them quite a while catch the animal. When the cow was safely back in the meadow, the N11 was given free for all traffic again, except for walking cows.

Alphen aan den Rijn commemorates on Tuesday the shooting that took place two years ago in the shopping center Ridderhof.  At 12 noon there will be a private memorial service organized by the city for the survivors and victims. Bas Eenhoorn, mayor of Alphen aan den Rijn, will lay flowers together with the shopkeepers' association of Ridderhof.

In 2011 Tristan van der Vlis caused a massacre at the mall. In a hail of bullets, six innocent people were killed and 16 were injured. Van der Vlis then committed suicide at the checkout area of a supermarket.
