THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS - An assailant in the Netherlands has stabbed three people on a busy shopping street in The Hague.

Police launched a manhunt to search for the suspect after the attack Friday evening.

National broadcaster NOS, citing unnamed sources, said, "At this moment, there is no indication of a terrorist motive."

Police said the victims are receiving treatment at a local hospital.

They said the stabbing happened in an area near the city's historic center that was busy with holiday shoppers.

The attack comes just hours after an assailant wearing a fake explosive device stabbed several people in London, before police officers fatally shot him.
