    THE HAGUE - Dutch military police arrested a British man of Somal descent yesterday on suspicion of terrorism as he transited through Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport en route from England to Uganda, prosecutors said.

    “A British man of Somali origin has been arrested at Schiphol,” the Dutch prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

    “At this moment, an inquiry is trying to determine whether or not the man belongs to a foreign terrorist organisation.”

    The suspect, who had travelled from John Lennon Airport in Liverpool, northeast England, and was on the way to Entebbe via Amsterdam, was arrested by Police just as his flight was about to take off, prosecutors said.

    Evert Boerstra, a spokesman for the Dutch prosecutor’s office, said the Police were tipped off by British authorities.

    This is the second arrest outside East Africa since the July 11 twin bomb attacks in Kampala, which claimed 79 people.

    The al-Qaeda-linked Somalia-based al-Shabaab militants claimed responsibility for the blasts at Kyadondo Rugby Club in Lugogo and the Ethiopian Village Restaurant in Kabalagala.

    The terrorists claimed the acts were a protest against Uganda’s deployment in Somalia. Uganda has been at the centre of the African Union Mission to Somalia with the highest number of troops to the peace-keeping mission.

    In August, Shaker Masri, 26, was arrested and charged in Chicago with plotting to travel to Somalia to train and wage a holy war with the al-Shabaab.

    Meanwhile, Mbugua Mureithi, the Kenyan advocate arrested in Kampala last week on suspicion of being linked to al-Shabaab was released and deported to Nairobi.

    Mureithi said his mission in Uganda was to defend the Kenyan terrorism suspects.

    However, Al-Amin Kimathi, who was arrested
    alongside Mureithi, was still in detention at the Rapid Response Unit headquarters.

    Al-Amin Kimathi, couldnt beleive when I first heard the news, I thought he was fighting for Muslims right without taking any inclination to extremists who have for a very long time shed a bad light on our religion. its sad that such a leader and role model involves himself with terrorists and extreme groups, who are these people fighting?
