A car has crashed into a crowd watching a parade involving Dutch Queen Beatrix and her family, killing four people and seriously injuring several others.
The car eventually careered into a monument, narrowly missing an open-topped bus carrying the royals.
No members of the royal family were hurt in the incident, in Apeldoorn, about 90km (56 miles) from Amsterdam.
Dutch officials said the driver, who was seriously hurt in the crash, appeared to have acted deliberately.
But after searching the car and his home, investigators have ruled out terrorism as a motive.

They have not named the man, but said he was a Dutch national aged 38.
Apeldoorn mayor Fred de Graaf told a news conference that four people had been killed in the incident and 13 injured – five of them seriously.
