E 75 million jewellery robbery Schiphol leads to security concerns

The robbery of E 75 million worth of diamonds and other jewellery has led to concerns by politicians and air companies.

The robbery happened last Friday, at Schiphol Airport. The robbers were able to seize a transport of valuables, and leave the airport area after that.

Amid growing concerns of terrorist attacks, politicians are demanding that certainly objects like the airport be protected extremely well. They are surprised that the robbery could happen in broad daylight.

Airline companies demand a better protection by the government. They say it is unclear who in the government is responsible for airport safety.
