Utrecht police are trying to solve the mystery of an 11-year-old Syrian girl, found alone in the city’s main railway station walking around with a suitcase.
The girl was spotted by NS workers, who called in the police. Conversation was difficult because the girl spoke neither Dutch or English, but a passerby was able to step in and act as interpreter, police said in an Instagram post.
The police are now trying to establish if the girl has been in the Netherlands for some time, or if she recently arrived, news agency ANP reported.
