470 Cash Dispensers Temporarily Closed Due to Explosive Attacks

“ABN AMRO has temporarily shut down 470 cash dispensers with immediate effect. This emergency measure is needed in view of the growing number of violent ATM explosive attacks. All cash has been removed from the machines. The past few months have seen a sharp rise in violent ATM explosive attacks, particularly targeting a certain type of cash dispenser used by ABN AMRO. The attacks are causing anxiety and unrest among inhabitants and businesses in the vicinity of the ATMs. As ABN AMRO puts the safety of the neighbourhood first, it has decided to shut down all cash dispensers of this type with immediate effect.”
