New blasts in Antwerp: car in flames by explosive
Antwerp It starts a bad habit to be in the North of Antwerp. A new night: a new burnt-out car. Around three o'clock to-night there was a report of an explosion from the Biekorfstraat to Park Spoor Noord. Once again it was a parked car was the target. The street was meanwhile back released by the police.

Perhaps summed up the parked car fire by an explosive, so there is again a question of intent. The car burned out completely. Three vehicles parked around were also damaged, just as a façade of a dwelling.

“There are no unexploded projectiles found as the day before,” stresses Willem Migom of the local police. “The street is closed off so that police and firefighters can do their work. When the targeted vehicle is hoisted, the street back released. There were no homes evacuated.”

The day before, there was also a grenade explosion under a vehicle in the North of Antwerp. Dovo had an other, non-detonated projectile controlled detonation. In recent weeks happened already several similar incidents with autobranden and missiles in residential areas around Park Spoor Noord.

All incidents are associated with the Antwerp drug world and be added to the dossier of the federal police.

Additional measures

Opposition parties Groen and Vlaams belang demands that mayor Bart De Wever (N-VA) additional measures to safety in his city to ensure. They have a very different look.

“It is time that mayor Weaver shows itself and visible actions”, says Green party leader Wouter Van Besien. “I call him on to the residents of the North of Antwerp, to meet and be visible and approachable politieaanwezigheid in the districts to increase and to make clear how he the wave of violence to a halt.” Van Besien also wants more cooperation between local and federal police.

Vlaams belang has a different solution in mind. “To law and order and the rest do return, the Flemish Interest that the army is deployed”, what it sounds like. “To show who the boss is, should soldiers patrolling in the affected areas in the North of Antwerp. They have the Antwerp drugswijken, combing, and ensure that the drug mafia is not an inch of space more.”
