Dutch police arrest 7 men suspected of plotting major terrorist attack

Dutch police arrested seven men for plotting a large terrorist attack. The men, ages 21-34, were arrested in a Dutch town near the Belgian and German borders and were allegedly planning to carry out an attack using explosive vests, assault rifles, and a car bomb. Police have indicated that the men were “quite far in their preparations” and that they had been tracking them at least since three of them were arrested and convicted of attempting to travel to join an overseas extremist network.
