The guy is arrested now, apparently a young and confused man. Doesn't like he had a bomb with him.

I guess you mean "Does not look like he had a bomb with him".  .

Fortunately for me I was already on my destination leaving from AMS when the incident happened there. Terminals 1 & 2 were closed for a while and all traffic was handled by Terminal 3 & 4 (which are directly adjacent to Terminal 1 & 2) and one can easily walk to and from these terminal without leaving the building.  

There were some delays though but these hopefully will disappear in the course of the day.

Since when does AMS have terminals 1/2/3/4? Their piers are called B/C/D/G....

The terminal buildings (there are two buildings adjacent to each other) are both divided into two arbitrary made sections. Thus making for sections 1 & 2 in the original terminal building and sections 3 & 4 in the newer terminal building. Which you will hardly notice when walking through the airport when being there. Only the exits for arriving passengers are numbered 1 to 4 as are the entrances for the departing passengers when they drive in front of the buildings.  .

There is no relation between these numbers and the naming of piers at AMS.  .

You can easily see the signs mentioning "departures 1", "departures 2" etc when travelling via AMS. Also signs like "Lounge 1" and "Lounge 3" indicate as such.

Don't know the real date but terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 are less confusing names than 'south', 'central', 'west' and 'H-pier'.

Can't say too much about it, but it caused a lot of chaos. No pax and staff were allowed to enter the departure area's 1 and 2. We had one 320 flight leaving with 1 pap because he was the only one who made it through security before it was shut down.
