Seven men have been arrested in the Netherlands on suspicion of plotting a significant terror attack.

The alleged attackers intended to carry out an assault using rifles, grenades and a car bomb.

Heavily armed police arrested the men on Thursday in the towns of Arnhem, about 62 miles (100km) south of Amsterdam, and Weert close to the borders of Belgium and Germany.

An investigation, which has run for several months, was launched into whether the alleged ringleader, a 34-year-old man of Iraqi heritage, wanted to carry out an attack using bomb vests and assault rifles, according to the Dutch prosecutor’s statement.
