Dutch police arrested two men in Amsterdam that were involved in the terror attacks in Paris in 2015. Two men of the age of 29 and 31 years old are under investigation because of weapons that were used by IS terrorists.
Members of a jihadist terror cell were visiting the Netherlands in 2015 to collect weapons such as Kalashnikovs and explosives. The suspects, the two arrested men, may be involved in the delivery of those arms, writes Algemeen Dagblad.
The police that formed an international team of Dutch, Belgian and French investigators, suspect that with these weapons, IS committed attacks in Paris. The attacks at the Stade de France, various cafes and in the Bataclan concert hall killed 129 and more than 350 were wounded.
One of the suspects was released om Thursday, because of health issues. This prevents him from being put in a cell. He is still considered a suspect. The other suspect is only allowed to have contact with his lawyer.
House searches were also carried out at home with the arrested men. In addition, computers, documents, other data carriers and mobile phones were seized.
