The man whose lengthy scream caused a panicked stampede of a crowd gathered at Amsterdamâ€™s Dam Square for the national Remembrance Day commemorations last May is in trouble again.

At a speed of 15 meters a day it has already passed two state monuments — the former stock market and the Bijenkorf warehouse. The historic buildings incurred no damage.
The man whose scream caused a panicked stampede of a crowd gathered at Amsterdam’s Dam Square for the national Remembrance Day commemorations last Tuesday has apologized, his lawyer says.

The disturbance caused panic in the crowd, with a 50 people injured in the stampede that resulted.
