Dutch Police Guard Russian Offices

Dutch police on Sunday began guarding offices of some Russian organizations, including Aeroflot and the Russian Embassy, after the National Coordinator for Counterterrorism received information about an undisclosed threat.

"We received information that made it necessary to take measures" that are being implemented by the police at our request, said Wim Kok, a spokesman for The Hague-based National Coordinator for Counterterrorism. Kok did not give further details, citing "security reasons."

The Dutch police are providing security to several offices, including the Amsterdam office of Aeroflot and the Russian Embassy in The Hague, said Kok, who declined to provide more examples. Aeroflot spokeswoman Irina Dannenberg said the offices of other Russian companies were being guarded as well.
