G7: Food Security Crisis Could Push Poorer Nations Into China’s Arms
Five of the 12 Somali men arrested on suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack in the Netherlands have been released, Dutch prosecutors said on Sunday.
The 12 men were arrested in the port of Rotterdam late on Friday following a tip from intelligence services that said an attack may have been imminent. There was no information on the target or timeline of the alleged attack.
Prosecutors said the men were no longer considered suspects, adding that two of the men were in possession of valid Dutch residency permits.
"The police investigation did not show that they participated in punishable crimes," prosecutors said.
The seven other suspects, aged between 19 and 48, were to remain in detention until at least Monday, when prosecutors were to decide whether to request an extension of their detentions.
Western leaders are under pressure to unite other countries behind their opposition to Russia's war in Ukraine, while Moscow is eager to blame Western sanctions for the worsening food crisis.
