A British-Somali man arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on suspicion of terror links was freed without charge today.
In a statement, prosecutors said British authorities had believed the man planned to join a terrorist group in Somalia, basing their suspicion on information from sources close to the man.
He was arrested on Sunday on a plane that was about to leave for Uganda.
He had flown to the Dutch capital earlier in the day from Liverpool.
The prosecutors said additional searches and witness statements, interrogations of the man and a search of his baggage had delivered no supporting evidence.
The national prosecutor’s office said the man has left the Netherlands and it was closing its investigation.
