AMSTERDAM (BNO NEWS) — Dutch police on Sunday morning arrested a British terror suspect at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, prosecutors said.

The British citizen, who is of Somali descent, was flying on a route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport in England to Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, but apparently made a stop at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

Prosecutors in the Netherlands said the man was taken into custody by the Royal Marechaussee aboard a plane, shortly before it was due to leave.

“At this moment the man’s possible involvement with a foreign terrorist organization is being investigated,” the country’s prosecutor’s office said. Other information was not immediately released by authorities.
