A French national suspected of “involvement in planning a terror attack” has been arrested in The Netherlands.

The 32-year-old, whose identity has not been released, was arrested Sunday at the request of French authorities in the port city of Rotterdam. He is expected to be extradited to France soon.

Three other people were detained in the raid. Two of them were described as ages 43 and 47 and "having an Algerian background," while the third has not yet been identified.

Dutch officials said the French requested the arrest Friday after the suspect was identified in a terrorism investigation.

They released no other details about the suspect or the investigation.
