Two charged over 'dry run' bomb plot
Tuesday 31 August 2010
Two men who flew from Chicago to Amsterdam on Sunday night have been charged by Dutch police with "preparation of a terrorist attack", reported ABC News.
US officials said the two men, named as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi, from Detroit, and Hezem al Murisi, appeared to be travelling with what were termed "mock bombs" in their luggage.
Mr Soofi was reported to have been carrying $7,000 in cash, and his luggage contained three mobile phones taped together, several watches taped together, a box cutter, three large knives, but no explosives. One official said: "This was almost certainly a dry run, a test."
