(CNN) — Dutch police raided five homes in Rotterdam early Monday, arresting three men suspected of planning an imminent act of violence, according to a spokeswoman for the Netherlands’ Justice Department.
Two of the suspects, aged 31 and 32, are Dutch-Moroccan and the third is a 39-year-old Sudanese man, spokeswoman Desiree Leppens told CNN.
Disgruntled members of the Dutch Reformed Church, no doubt.
She said special police forces conducted the raid after the Justice Department received information from General Intelligence and Security Services on the three men.
“We got the information yesterday evening and around 6 o’clock (Monday morning) we had the first arrest,” Leppens said.
Dutch authorities have launched an investigation and must charge the men by the end of the week, she said. She said it is too early in the investigation to elaborate on what charges are being considered.
She had no other details on the raid or what led authorities to the suspects.
