2 men are detained in Amsterdam on terrorism charges

Police in Amsterdam detained two men on Sunday night after U.S. security screeners found suspicious items in their checked luggage. Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al-Soofi of Tuscaloosa, Ala., and Hezem al Murisi of Memphis, Tenn., were arrested in Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport and charged with preparing for a terrorist attack after security officials in the U.S. detected multiple knives, cell phones, a box cutter and a bundle of watches in al-Soofi's checked luggage. The men were flying from Chicago to Amsterdam on Sunday night with plans to continue on to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen. U.S. officials said passengers on the United Airlines flight were never at risk and noted that federal air marshals were on the flight.
