Netherlands: Possible attack foiled

This is breaking news. I'll be adding more news as it appears.


The Dutch Special Intervention Unit (DSI, an anti-terrorism police unit), arrested three men Monday, suspected of wanting to commit a possible attack. The Public Prosecution reports that the suspects are 31, 32, and 39 years old.

The men were arrested in Rotterdam. Two of the men have both Moroccan and Dutch citizenship. One man has no permanent residence and is probably Sudanese.

Five residences were searched and data and correspondence confiscated.

Update 2:

The prosecution is not releasing any information regarding why these men were arrested. The men can be held for three days and 15 hours, after which the prosecutor must decide whether there's enough evidence to charge them.
