AMSTERDAM — The Dutch public prosecutor said Saturday that 12 Somalis were detained in the port city of Rotterdam on suspicion of terrorist-related activities.

The men were seized Friday on a tip from the intelligence services that they were planning a terrorist attack shortly in the Netherlands. There was no immediate information on the intended target.

Police searched a call center, four houses and two motel rooms in the Rotterdam area, prosecutors said in a statement. No weapons or explosives were found.

The prosecutors said the suspects are aged 19 to 48. Six live in Rotterdam, five have no permanent residence and one man comes from Denmark.
