- Interior Ministry: Police found an AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle and illegal fireworks
- A 30-year-old man "is suspected of preparing a terrorist crime," ministry says
The man was arrested Wednesday when police raided an apartment where he lived in the port city, the ministry said.
Officers found an AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle with two full magazines in the apartment as well as four boxes of highly explosive illegal fireworks.
The police also seized a large painting with an image of a flag used by ISIS, mobile phones and 1,600 euros in cash, an Interior Ministry statement said.
The man "is suspected of preparing a terrorist crime," the statement said.
In response to reports of the arrest, far-right politician Geert Wilders tweeted: "The Netherlands thanks to Rutte."
He was referring to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who earlier Friday said neither he nor his government would be willing to form a coalition with Wilders' far-right party unless he retracted discriminatory comments he made about Moroccans.
Wilders was convicted by a Dutch court earlier Friday
of inciting discrimination and "insulting a group" over the statements he made about Moroccans.
