A ROCK concert by US band Allah-Las has been cancelled and the venue evacuated amid concerns over a terror threat after police stopped a van filled with gas bottles nearby.
Police officers wearing bulletproof vests descended on the Maassilo venue in Rotterdam while an anti-terror unit was also on-site, according to local media.
The gig was cancelled following a tip-off from Spanish police and the mayor of Rotterdam has now confirmed a small van with Spanish number plates and "gas bottles" was found near the venue.
Dutch police officers stopped the driver of the van in Rotterdam and have taken him into custody.
