Prosecutors probe terror motive in Utrecht attack

Dutch prosecutors are probing a possible terrorist motive behind a shooting on a tram that killed three people and left others injured.

The city of Utrecht was placed on lockdown Monday as security forces spent seven hours hunting for the gunman, before arresting 37-year-old Turkish-born Gokmen Tanis.

He is still in custody.

Authorities say it's unclear whether he acted based on political beliefs or personal vendetta, and a link between the victims and the suspected shooter is yet to be identified.

Turkey's state-run news agency said on Monday - quoting family members - that the suspect fired at a relative on the tram, then shot at others who ran to her aid.

Tanis will be brought before a judge by Thursday.

Two other suspects are also held in custody - their role so far unclear.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte convened crisis talks immediately after the incident.

Which happened just days after a lone gunman killed 50 people in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.
