Further procedings against homegrown Dutch terrorists

The Amsterdam Magistrate Court is in session to deal with the Dutch terrorist group "Hofstad". "Hofstad" means "Capital City". The name was given to the amorphous group due to the fact that in the beginning of the police investigation many members seemed to be living in Den Haag, the Capital of the Netherlands.

A female witness was heard who was working with her husband for Nouredinne El F. Nouredinne El F. is a Moroccan who was arrested with an submachine gun on station Lelylaan in Amsterdam. The witness told the court that she was forced to rent a house in Brussels and had to smuggle weapons to the house, on behalf of El F. Also El F. forced her and her husband to shoot guns in a forest to the south of Amsterdam, the Amsterdamse Bos.
