KIFI

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Two people have been killed in a stabbing incident in the eastern Netherlands and a suspect was detained by armed police. There were no immediate details of the identities of the victims or whether the suspect knew them and no word on a possible motive in the slayings Friday. Video on social media showed a man, stripped to the waist, holding a crossbow and apparently pointing it at police on the street below in a residential neighborhood of the town of Almelo. There was no indication the crossbow was used in the killings. Police said Friday morning that the suspect and another person were injured and that they were investigating the incident. Further details were not immediately released.
