UTRECHT, Netherlands, March 18 (Reuters) - A gunman shot dead three people and wounded nine on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht on Monday and police said they were hunting for a 37-year-old Turkish man in an apparent terrorist attack.

Dutch authorities raised the terrorism threat to its highest level in Utrecht province, schools were told to shut their doors and paramilitary police increased security at airports and other vital infrastructure and also at mosques.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte convened crisis talks, saying he was deeply concerned about the incident, which came three days after a lone gunman killed 50 people in mass shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

"The police asks you to watch out for 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis (born in Turkey) in connection with this morning's incident," Dutch police said in a statement.

They issued an image of the man and warned the public not to approach him. They gave no further details.

The mayor of Utrecht, Jan van Zanen, said three people had been killed and nine injured, three of them seriously, in the tram incident.

"Our country today has been jolted by an attack in Utrecht," the prime minister said in a statement. "Police and prosecutors are looking into what exactly happened. What's known now is that there was shooting at people sitting in a tram in Utrecht."

Rutte did not repeat earlier suggestions that the shooting may have had a terrorist motive.

The Algemeen Dagblad newspaper, citing a witness, said the gunman had targeted one woman on the tram and then shot other people who had tried to help her.

Dutch television showed counter-terrorism units surrounding a house in Utrecht, but there was no official confirmation that the gunman might be inside.

"A lot is still unclear at this point and local authorities are working hard to establish all the facts. What we already know is that a culprit is at large," Counter-Terrorism Agency head Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg told a news conference.

Earlier Aalbersberg said the shooting "appears to be a terrorist attack". Source

CIA Officers Killed On US Air Force Bombardier E-11A Jet Shot Down By The Taliban.....

Taliban claims it shot down US Air Force plane in Afghanistan carrying CIA officers The Taliban has claimed a “passenger plane” that crashed in Afghanistan was actually a US Air Force jet it deliberately shot down. The jet came down in the country’s eastern Ghazni province, which is controlled by the military organisation, this afternoon. Local officials initially reported the jet to be a Boeing 737-400 plane that belonged to Ariana Airlines, carrying 83 passengers. But the state-owned carrier quickly moved to deny the claims as new pictures emerged from the crash site. The images showed the wreckage of the plane with the engine bearing a US Air Forces logo, prompting US military officials to investigate. But the Taliban has now issued a statement to claim that the aircraft was, as the pictures indicate, a US Air Force Bombardier E-11A jet that it shot down. In a statement a Taliban source said the plane was carrying high ranking Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers. It a…
