German police arrest Syrian for terror plot in the Netherlands

Police in Mainz have arrested a 26-year-old Syrian suspected of planning a terror attack in the Netherlands.

The arrest followed an extradition request by Dutch authorities. The man is under strong suspicion of being involved in planning a terror attack.

German courts and the Attorney General of Koblenz will make a decision on the extradition to the Netherlands some time after Sunday.

The apartment in which the suspect was found was not his and searched but police did not give any further details on the result of the search as Rotterdam has jurisdiction.

Prior to this arrest, Dutch police announced the arrest of four terrorists in Rotterdam. They were also planning a terror attack.

The Dutch police managed to spoil another terror plot in September, arresting seven suspects in Arnhem and Weert. The men were charged with planning an attack on a large public event.

Dutch police found large amounts of bomb making materials, including hundreds of kilograms of fertiliser in September’s arrests.

German police issued a statement of working closely together with their Dutch counterparts to investigate the case.
