World Dutch police arrest two suspects in connection with 2015 Paris terror attacks

Dutch prosecutors say police have detained two men in Amsterdam on suspicion of involvement in providing weapons used in the deadly November, 2015 terror attacks in Paris.

Prosecutors said Friday that the men, aged 29 and 31, were detained Tuesday following an investigation by French, Belgian and Dutch detectives. Computers, data carriers, documents and cellphones were seized from their homes.

Prosecutors say in a statement, “the suspicion against them is that they were involved in some way in delivering the weapons” used by Islamic extremists who killed 130 concertgoers at the Bataclan venue and other Paris sites on Nov. 13, 2015.
