Dutch suspect Syrian asylum seeker of radical ties

AMSTERDAM - An 18-year-old Syrian asylum seeker was arrested by police in the Netherlands on suspicion of membership of a terrorist organization, prosecutors said in a statement on Thursday.


The man, who was not identified by authorities, reportedly told other asylum seekers he had fought alongside Islamic State and al Qaeda militants.


Dutch police arrested the man on Monday after he applied for asylum in October, the statement said. His detention was extended by two weeks by a magistrate.
