Daeniken is a municipality in the Swiss canton of Solothurn, located in the northern part of the country. The train, which was reportedly evacuated, had been traveling between Olten SO and Aarau AG.
Swiss police stopped a train in the city of Daeniken and evacuated passengers due to a potentially dangerous situation on Thursday, local media outlet Blick reported, citing Solothurn cantonal police sources.
“A train has to be evacuated because of a threat situation”, a police spokesman told Blick, without providing any details.
The SBB, Swiss Federal Railways, told Blick that the incident is expected to affect numerous local and long-distance connections, with some trains facing possibility of delays or cancellation.
A video was shared on social media, allegedly filmed from the stopped train, showing police presence at the Daeniken rail station.
“IC Bern-Zurich. Standing in Däniken, more and more police are arriving. No further travel possible because of a “police operation”. What’s going on there?”, the user questioned in the video caption.
There have been no official statements from the canton police immediately.
