Two explosions in Zwolle on Tuesday morning seem to be aimed at Bob Kooistra, owner of night club Bruut where a hand grenade was tied to the door last year. The explosions happened at his parents' home. Kooistra's father is a detective with the police. And Kooistra himself regularly stays at his parents' home, local residents told De Stentor.
