rotterdam - Of the four men who were arrested on Sunday in Rotterdam on suspicion of involvement in terrorism, two Wednesday were released. It is a 21-year-old man from Vlaardingen and a 29-year-old Swede.
They will be brought before the examining judge on Thursday. The Public Prosecution Service will request to extend the pre-trial of the two men by two weeks.
A 30-year-old man from Delft and a 23-year-old man from Gouda have been released. 'For the time being it has not been proven that they are involved in terrorism,' according to the Public Prosecution Service, but they remain suspicious.
Information from a foreign police service about the possible involvement in the Swede's terrorism led to an investigation in the Netherlands. The man from Sweden arrived on Sunday afternoon with a flight from Stockholm. He was arrested shortly afterwards with the three others. There was no concrete indication for an attack.
After the arrest of the men, four houses were searched in Vlaardingen (2), Delft and Gouda. No weapons or explosives were found. However, computers and telephones have been seized and are being investigated further.
