Royal Motorcade: Four Dead As Car Hits Crowd
At least four people are reported to have been killed and around 13 hurt in The Netherlands after a car careered into spectators watching a royal motorcade.
People were flung through the air after the car swerved across police railings
A photographer said the small car appeared to be deliberately driving at high speed toward an open-top bus carrying Queen Beatrix and her family in the western Dutch town of Apeldoorn.
As I said above, this is still developing (anyone out there who's ever been a first-responder knows that 5-hours can pass in a flash and is not enough time to sort things out) and the casualty-count jumped by 2 while I was reading - there is nothing more known in any specific way other than that this has happened.
Within-the-fold, you'll find some stills and a link to a video shot as-it-happened (they're disturbing - one of the victims is apparently a little girl - , so don't click-in unless you're sure).

A couple of points:
1) As is plain by the pics and video - that car was moving fast (enough so that the front was already smashed-in when it ran through the last spectators and into the statue on the corner)
2) Holiday/Government-Event-Motorcades operate pretty much the same way everywhere - slowly, and with a great effect on travel-speed of the surrounding roads.
Based on these two data-points, I'm going to have to agree with the above-quoted photographer and say that this had to have been deliberate - there simply would have been no opportunity for that kind of speed otherwise.
So what you've got is a lone male, approximately in his mid-to-late 20s, who made a 'kamikaze run' at the Dutch Queen's motorcade bus, through a crowd.
That may not be quite enough to assign blame to the Netherlands' recent Geert-Wilders-and-Spreading-Islamic-Violence problem...*definitively*.
But, if I were a betting man...
