AROUND 45 KILOGRAMS of ammunition were found in an apartment in the Dutch city of Rotterdam that has been linked to a foiled terror attack on France, prosecutors said.

French suspect Anis Bahri was arrested at the flat in the southern port city on 27 March at France’s request. He is suspected of planning an attack in France for the Islamic State group along with Reda Kriket, another suspect arrested near Paris a few days before him.

“We have found around 45 kilos of ammunition, including two types of bullets which can both be used with Kalashnikovs,” Wim de Bruin, a spokesman for the national prosecutor’s office said.

He said no explosives or any arms had been found.

Bahri has been fighting extradition and is in custody until Dutch authorities take a decision on whether to send him to France.
