LIEMPDE, The Netherlands, Nov 12 (AFP) – Dutch police on Friday raided a suspected Kurdish separatist training camp in a small village in the southern Netherlands, and several other locations arresting 38 people, the state prosecutor’s office said.
Police raided a camp site in Liempde where an alleged training camp of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party PKK was set up, according to Dutch authorities.
According to the authorities investigations revealed that some 20 people received “training to prepare for the armed struggle of the PKK in Turkey, by committing terrorist attacks”.
Police arrested 29 people in Liempde and nine suspects in other locations in the Netherlands. Ten houses were searched and police seized night-glasses, documents and a fire arm.
Because the PKK is on the European Union list of terrorist organisations the Dutch said the people were arrested on suspicion of belonging to a terrorist organisation.
UPDATE: My apologies for the hasty posting this morning; I neglected to mention that the PKK is a Marxist group. This story is not another sign of jihad in the Netherlands, but of the Dutch government’s crackdown, which is extending also to Islamic groups. We shall see exactly how far it extends in the coming weeks.
