Dutch court orders suspects in alleged terrorism plot freed

A Dutch court has ordered the release of three suspects alleged to have plotted a terrorist attack, the national prosecutor's office said Thursday. Spokesman Wim de Bruin said prosecutors would appeal the decision to free two of the three men, whose names have not been released. He said prosecutors agreed there was not enough evidence to hold the third any longer, but the investigation is continuing and all three remain suspects. The men, two with dual Dutch and Moroccan citizenship and one from Sudan, were arrested in Rotterdam on New Year's Eve on the basis of information gathered by the Dutch intelligence agency.
