Dutch Jewish school closed after anti-terrorist raid in Belgium

Amsterdam: The only Orthodox Jewish school in the Netherlands was closed on Friday as a precautionary measure after an anti-terrorism raid in Belgium left two suspects dead.

There was no concrete threat against the Cheider School in Amsterdam, Dutch national broadcaster NOS said, citing the school`s Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs. School phones went unanswered on Friday morning.

Jewish schools in Antwerp and Brussels are also temporarily closed after two terrorism suspects were killed in a raid in Verviers, Belgium, on Thursday.

Dutch Jewish schools and prominent Jewish monuments - including Amsterdam`s Anne Frank House and Jewish Historical Museum - have had extra security since June, on advice of the country`s national anti-terrorism office.

That followed a terrorism-related shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Belgium, in May that killed four.
