AMSTERDAM (AP) - A Dutch broadcast report says a man arrested today at an airport in Amsterdam is allegedly linked to Somalia's most dangerous militant group, al-Shabab.
A spokesman for the Dutch prosecutors office, Evert Boerstra, says the man was arrested on Sunday after flying in from Liverpool, England, en route to Uganda.
Boerstra says the tip-off came from British authorities. He says the man is suspected of possible involvement with a foreign terrorist organization, but did not specify which one.
Last month, two Yemeni men were arrested at the Amsterdam airport after flying in from Chicago, on suspicion they may have been conducting a dry run for an airline terror attack. The two were held for several days then released without charge after an investigation turned up no evidence to link them to a terror plot.
