AMSTERDAM — A boy, 16, stabbed his two brothers aged 21 and 22, with a kitchen knife in a town in the southern Netherlands on Wednesday evening.

A police spokesperson said the eldest brother suffered multiple stab wounds to his entire body. He is in serious condition but is out of danger. The other victim suffered lesser injuries during the incident in Loon op Zand at 7.30pm.

Their younger brother cycled to the local police station in nearby Kaatsheuvel to surrender himself. He stated that the three of them had an argument in the attic of their home on Willibrordusstraat in Loon op Zand.  He would not explain what triggered the dispute.

The family had not been living in the street long prior to the incident but was not registered with social services as a "problem family". The mother, who was in the house at the time, ran to neighbours in panic. The father and a girl, 7, were not home at the time of the stabbing.
