Blasts Hit Dutch Olympics HQ

August 21, 1986|Associated Press

AMSTERDAM — Bombs today damaged a building housing the Dutch Olympics Organizing Committee and a satellite dish atop a post office in an apparent protest of Amsterdam's bid to be chosen as the site of the 1992 Olympics.

No injuries were reported, and there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Police believe that the blasts were caused by one of the protest groups objecting to Amsterdam's campaign to play host to the Summer Games, claiming that the city is not large enough and that the event would disrupt the quality of life.
