(Newser) – A Somali-born British terrorism suspect from Liverpool was busted in Amsterdam as he sat on a plane waiting to fly to Uganda. Dutch security swooped in after a tip from British authorities. He is suspected of involvement with an unspecified foreign terror organization, reports the Guardian. It wasn't immediately clear if he was currently involved in a planned terror attack. The Dutch have beefed up airport security after the Christmas Day terror attack when passengers and crew tackled a British-educated Nigerian as he attempted to detonate a bomb in his underwear just before his flight from Amsterdam was to land in Detroit.
