Dutch police arrest Pakistani on terror charges

THE HAGUE (AFP) — Dutch police have arrested a Pakistani man allegedly linked to a network of Islamic extremists which was largely dismantled after raids in Barcelona this January, prosecutors said Friday.

The 26-year-old was picked up late Thursday in the southwestern Dutch town of Breda, the public prosecutor's office said in a statement.

The detainee was "suspected of belonging to a global jihadist network which is preparing attacks in western Europe," including France, Portugal, Germany and Britain as well as Spain, the statement said.
