Another Rotterdam home was raided as part of a terrorism investigation on Tuesday night. Officers searched for weapons and explosives, but nothing was found. No one was arrested.

A spokesperson for the Public Prosecutor told that the raid at the address on Oudedijk in the Kralingen neighborhood was part of the investigation into the terrorism suspects that were arrested in the city on Sunday. He did not say whether they got the address in an interrogation, but did state that the information did not come from France. Information from France led to the arrest of four terrorist suspects, including Frenchman Anis B., on Sunday.

Police officers, a counterterrorism unit and the Explosives Ordnance Disposal squad started the raid late on Tuesday night. The search was finished around 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The Public Prosecutor stated on Twitter that no weapons or explosives were found.
