Drug gangs may be behind Dutch newspaper attacks: police

first_img\R The Hague, Jun 27 (AFP) Dutch police today stepped up a probe into a van attack on one of the country’s leading newspapers, with drug-trafficking gangs possible suspects, as the daily vowed it would never be cowed.”We are currently investigating all angles, but we are not excluding that the attack may have some connection to organised crime,” Amsterdam police spokeswoman Esther Izaks told AFP.A white van was twice deliberately rammed into the glass-fronted facade of the head offices of popular daily tabloid De Telegraaf in Amsterdam before dawn yesterday.The hoodie-wearing driver then got out, poured the contents of a jerrycan into the back of the van and set it alight, igniting a massive fireball. The driver fled in a nearby waiting car.”We will never be silent,” declared the front-page headline of De Telegraaf on Wednesday, above a picture of the burnt-out Volkswagen Caddy van lodged in the charred and twisted facade.It was the second attack on a Dutch media organisation in less than a week after a man fired an anti-tank weapon into another building in the same Sloterdijk area of Amsterdam housing several organisations including the weekly newspaper Panorama.Extra safety measures have now been put in place to protect other newspaper buildings around the city, including more surveillance cameras.”We have launched an intensive investigation, but it is not possible at this stage to say how long it may last,” Izaks said.The Telegraaf said the police have set-up a large-scale investigation team, with about 20 detectives and forensic experts assigned to the case. Some are scanning CCTV records, and they are appealing for other video footage from any passersby.advertisementThe Telegraaf, known for its focus on crime exposes, as well as sports and celebrity gossip, speculated that Amsterdam’s so-called Mocro-mafia may be behind the attacks.Both De Telegraaf and Panorama have recently published stories about the police hunt for two wanted gang members from Utrecht, who are believed to have fled to Mexico.”Perhaps the attacks were in reaction to these two stories,” the Telegraaf wrote.Far from tourists’ eyes, the Dutch capital has witnessed several assassinations in recent years as rival gangs vie for control of the lucrative drug trade.The most gruesome was in 2016 when the severed head of a known gang member was found outside a shisha lounge.The gangs consist mainly of Dutch citizens of Moroccan or Surinamese descent.Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte called the attack a “slap in the face to the free press and to Dutch democracy” and the national journalists association denounced what it called an “alarming trend”.Dutch police said meanwhile they had found early Wednesday the burnt-out wreck of the possible getaway car, after an Audi was found on fire in a parking lot near a main highway.

Dzeko fires back at critics

first_imgEdin Džeko ‘The insults hurt the most’ – Dzeko fires back at criticism Goal Last updated 2 years ago 18:23 10/18/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Edin Dzeko, Roma, Serie A, 20092017 Getty Images Edin Džeko Roma Chelsea v Roma UEFA Champions League Serie A The 31-year-old remains in excellent form for Roma but still faces questions over his commitment to the team, much to his irritation Edin Dzeko has admitted he gets hurt by claims he does not work hard enough and dismissed the idea as “a joke”.The Roma striker topped the Serie A goal chart last season with 29 and has started the new campaign in excellent form, scoring seven in as many games in the league.However, the 31-year-old is surprised that he still faces regular criticism from fans over a perceived lack of interest during games and feels social media makes it easy for people to forget footballers are human.

I don’t give my best? Come on! That is a joke,” he said in an interview with The Guardian.”I can guarantee that no one in the stands or in front of the TV wants us to win games more than I do! Any match, I don’t care who we play against or what we play for, I just want to score a goal or my team to score a goal so that we win the match. Every match I give my very best. Every single match.“I know people will criticise when you play bad; that is part of this job and I am fine with that. That is not a problem. The problem is the insults. That is what hurts the most. This is the time of social media and everyone has a chance to publicly say what they think. No matter how illogical or stupid it is. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, everyone is entitled to insult you because you did not score or play well.”People think that they care more than I do – but that is simply not true.“It’s never easy to read headlines like that, to hear fans shouting things like that. You know that you are better than that, that you can play much better, but sometimes it is difficult to turn things around. What people do not see is that you are a human being too and that you have problems like everyone else.“I would lie if I tell you that I don’t listen or read what people say. I do. I ignore the insults and irrational things but I like to watch and read what educated football people have to say, people who analyse things, especially in Italy. They know football, they try to do it in depth and as someone involved in the game I do enjoy some articles or programmes.”Edin Dzeko RomaEdin Dzeko, Inter vs. RomaAfter finishing second to Juventus in Serie A last season, Roma are already nine points off the pace of leaders Napoli, while they sit second in their Champions League group ahead of Wednesday’s game against Chelsea.Dzeko 6/4 to score v ChelseaThe team are feeling the pressure to improve and challenge for titles from their passionate fans and the ex-Manchester City attacker enjoys the ambition within the city and the club.“Nothing compares to Rome. Nothing,” he added. “People there are crazy about football, in a positive way. The expectations were big in Germany, bigger in England, but nothing even close to Rome. It’s a special city, with a special bond with a club and people adore it.”In Manchester I could go out for a dinner or for a walk; people would stop me and politely ask for a photo from time to time. In Rome it is impossible for me to walk normally in the city. They are passionate, love their club and their players and the attention is enormous. And that kind of attention and passion raises expectations and pressure. But I am not saying this in a negative way.”I love how things work there, because passion and love is what football is supposed to be about.”last_img read more
