Amsterdam: Muslims demand explanations from police

Two Muslims who were detained on a train in Amsterdam on suspicion of terrorism are demanding explanations from the police. The two were detained, bound and blindfolded when fellow travelers called up police to report their strange behavior (ie, Muslim dress, preparations for prayer) and were released an hour later without any further explanation.

Ten of thousands of train travelers were inconvenienced by the incident as all train traffic in the area was stopped.

According to them: "A Muslim is assumed to be a terrorist and is handled as such. So we have seen, felt and experienced it now for real."
