Here are the terrorist suspects: tonnes of raw material for bombs found

Yesterday 7 men were prevented from carrying out a terrorist attack on a major event in the Netherlands. Here are 5 of the suspects identified. 

The 1st suspect is Hardi N (34, Arnhem), who was arrested in 2014 on suspicion of leaving for Syria to join the terror group Jabhat al-Nusra. Hardi N has previously been treated for post-traumatic stress disorder and only just got custody of his daughter back.

The 2nd and youngest suspect is Amir B (18, Arnhem). His mother is shocked; she always knew he wanted to be “a good believer”, but never suspected that he could be involved in terrorism.

The 3rd and 4th suspects are Nadeem S (26, Arnhem suburb of Vredenburg) and Wail el A (21, Rotterdam – but originally from Arnhem-Zuid), who were both arrested in 2015 at the Syrian border in 2015.

The 5th and final identified suspect – and the one that the Public Prosecution Service know least about – is Morad M (21, Vlaardingen).

The suspects’ homes were raided and 100 kilos of artificial fertilizer were found – possibly for a car bomb – as well as raw materials used in bomb vests. More to come.
