Terrorists Plan to Hit Dutch Parliament, Airport and a Nuclear Reactor

"The Justice Ministry suspects terrorists have drawn up plans for an attack on the Dutch Parliament, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the Borssele nuclear reactor, the Defence Ministry and the Leidschendam office of the AIVD secret service."

The single suspect was arrested in June for involvement in a supermarket robbery. In his apartment the authorities found bomb-making chemicals, night goggles, and floor plans for possible targets.

The Dutch government issued a terror warning in July and it is still in effect.

The man is a Dutch citizen of Moroccan origin. He will appear in court on September 23.
