Per NPR All Things Considered...

The Dutch press and Los Angeles Times reporter Carol Williams have
been looking into mysteries surrounding the 1992 El Al crash in
Amsterdam. [Moderator; add date/details??]

It appears the flight was carrying hazardous cargo, including
chemicals used in the manufacture of nerve gas. But the flight
manifest is missing. Further many hours of video tape taken
by the Dutch rescue forces have been erased.

Further, after reports of a "gas leak" empied the site of
witnesses, residents in adjacent apartment houses report a
helicopter appeared and dropped protective-suited men into the
rubble; they appeared to be searching for materials, not
survivers.
