Three Coptic churches in the Netherlands are included on a list of potential terrorist targets on an Al Qaida-affiliated website, the Volkskrant reports on Tuesday.

The churches are in Eindhoven, Utrecht and Amsterdam, and were included on a list of dozens of European Coptic churches on website Shumukh al-Islam.
The website has called for attacks on churches during the Coptic Christmas on January 7.
