Dutch prosecutors say two Yemeni citizens who arrived in Amsterdam on a flight from the United States are suspects in a conspiracy to commit a terrorist act.
Prosecutors said the two men flew in from Chicago on Monday and were bound for Sana'a, the Yemeni capital. They were detained due to information provided by U.S. authorities.
Their luggage was sent on an internal flight to Washington, where U.S. authorities found suspicious items. But Dutch authorities said nothing suspicious was in the luggage that arrived in Amsterdam. Prosecutors said Tuesday the men were being held "on suspicion of a conspiracy to a terrorist criminal act."
It will be announced in a few days if they will be charged.
