Officials say three European Ikea stores were hit overnight by firework attacks. No serious injuries were reported and the stores reopened as scheduled Tuesday. Stores in in The Netherlands, France and Belgium were targeted.

An Ikea spokeswoman said the explosions were all caused by, quote, "Small firework devices." She added that Ikea has received no threats in connection with the incidents. Dutch Ikea stores have a history of receiving bomb threats. In 2009, Amsterdam's store was evacuated and closed for a day after an anonymous tip that Islamic radicals had planted bombs there.
