"The man threatened with a knife and the military police shot him", spokesman Stan Verberkt said.

Later the police issued another tweet adding "The suspect was overpowered, detained and taken away".

"At this stage, the situation has returned back to normal".

Trains were temporarily not stopping, but are now going in and out of the airport station as normal.

Schiphol airport, just outside Amsterdam, is one of Europe's five busiest airports.

In a mobile phone video broadcast on the Dutch broadcaster NOS, a man could be heard shouting "there are shots being fired" with the clear sound of three shots echoing in the plaza.

It serves as the second main hub for Air France-KLM, and also hosts many budget airlines such as Transavia and EasyJet. In addition, the Amsterdam airport's terminal was evacuated but has since reopened.
