No charges against Rotterdam ‘terrorists’

Three men arrested in Rotterdam on December 31 on suspicion of planning terrorist attacks will not face any charges because there is not enough evidence against them, the public prosecution department said on Wednesday.

According to press reports, the three were planning to launch an attack during the New Year celebrations on the city’s Erasmus bridge. They were all released from custody in mid-January.
