Another 10 Dutch names were added to the Netherlands' national terrorism list. The list now contains 100 names - 86 men, 11 women and three organizations, RTL Nieuws reports.

Most of the names on the list involve people believed to be involved in terrorist activities in Syria and Iraq.

The bank accounts and assets of everyone on the list have been frozen, which means they can no longer access the money in their accounts. This measure is intended to make it more difficult for terrorist activities to be funded from the Netherlands. 

The Netherlands shares this terrorism list with other Member States in the European Union, and insists that member states do the same with their own lists. "By publishing and sharing all terror lists, it becomes more transparent for EU citizens and financial institutions who exactly is subject to asset freezing measures." Minister Bert Koenders of Foreign Affairs said.
