荷兰得到恐袭警报后取消摇滚乐队演出

Officials in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam canceled a performance by the American rock group Allah-Las following a tip from Spanish police that a terror attack may have been imminent.

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb said at a hastily arranged news conference that police were questioning the driver of a van loaded with gas tanks that was found near the concert venue. The vehicle was registered in Spain.

Concert organizer Rotown said on Twitter that the concert venue, a former grain silo called Maassilo, was evacuated. The decision to cancel the event was made less than an hour before doors were to open to the public.

Dutch television images from Maassilo showed officers wearing body armor, escorting a group believed to be members of the band, whose name refers to the Islamic deity.

The Allah-Las group is from Los Angeles. The four musicians told the British newspaper The Guardian last year that they chose Allah, the Arabic name for God, for their group's name because they wanted something "holy sounding," and did not realize it might cause offense.
