En 29 år gammel nederlender av angolansk opphav, som hadde tilbrakt tid hos jihadister i Syria, ble torsdag arrestert på den internasjonale flyplassen i Portugal. Han hadde en kniv på seg da han ble tatt.


A Dutch youth, suspected of being a member of a jihadist group, was arrested at Lisbon’s international airport after he had boarded a flight operated by Taag airline bound for Angola, police said Monday.

The 29-year-old of Angolan origin had a knife on him when detained. The arrest occurred last Thursday but security officials only spoke about the case to the media on Monday. The man told Portuguese authorities he had spent time in a jihadist training camp in Syria.
