Dutch police arrest suspects in anti-terror raids

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch police arrested several
suspects in anti-terror raids on Friday, the country's national
anti-terror coordinator said.

The office of Tjibbe Joustra said in a statement that
several people suspected of "terrorist activities" had been
arrested and that a number of government officials and
buildings were being given extra security.

Dutch news agency ANP said that among seven people arrested
was Samir Azzouz, who was acquitted in April of charges he
planned attacks on government buildings.
