FOUR Dutch citizens of Moroccan origin were arrested yesterday for plotting to attack the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam. Three were arrested in the Netherlands while a fourth was detained in Belgium and will be extradited.
FOUR men allegedly planning an attack on the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam have been arrested, Dutch prosecutors said yesterday. In a statement, the national prosecutor’s office identified the four as Moroccan-Dutch, and evidence of their plot had surfaced from a wiretap of a different man arrested in 2017. Three of the men are to be brought before a judge this week, while the fourth was arrested in Belgium and will be extradited, prosecutors said. Turkish diplomatic missions in Europe have been attacked by terrorist PKKlinked groups.
