Dutch authorities seize terror suspect with army explosives

Dutch authorities have arrested a man suspected of stealing explosives from an army depot to carry out a terrorist attack.

The unidentified suspect, 29, was detained last Tuesday on a military training ground in the southern province of Brabant and handed over to military police. He was dressed in army clothes, a statement issued by prosecutors said.

Investigators reportedly found a homemade bomb, 45 military-issue thunder flashes - used for training to simulate a battlefield - and smoke bombs at his home.

A judge on Friday ordered the suspect to remain in custody for 14 days on charges of stealing military goods and illegal possession of explosives with the intent to use them in a terrorist act.

Dutch media reported that the man was a convert to Islam who told police he had ties to the Hofstad terror network, said to be behind the November murder of filmmaker Theo van Gogh, the AP reports.
