King Willem-Alexander and Prime Minister Mark Rutte led dignitaries on the tarmac as two military aircraft carrying 40 plain wooden coffins landed at Eindhoven Airport in the southern Netherlands. A military honor guard stood to attention as a lone trumpeter played The Last Post, the military funeral call for people killed in war.
