THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Dutch police have carried out another raid in the port city of Rotterdam, days after detaining a 32-year-old French national at the request of French authorities on suspicion of involvement in a “terrorist plan.”
The Dutch national prosecutor’s office said in a statement Wednesday that the raid Tuesday night did not uncover any weapons or explosives and no suspects were arrested.
The latest raid followed an operation Sunday night in which the Frenchman and three other suspects were detained by heavily armed police in Rotterdam. The suspect sought by French authorities has refused a swift transfer to France and will now go through an extradition procedure.
Two other men detained Sunday, both with Algerian backgrounds, were appearing before an investigating judge Wednesday on charges of “involvement in a terrorist organization.”
