AMSTERDAM (REUTERS) - Dutch military police on Saturday (April 11) said they arrested two men, one of whom was carrying a loaded firearm, as they exited a train to Schiphol airport.

In a statement, the Marechausse said they had a special arrest team ready after receiving a report from an emergency services number that someone was loading a weapon on the train.

"The man in possession of a firearm and his travelling companion have been detained for further investigation," the Marechausse said in the statement.
