Japan: North Korea Rules Out Quick Resumption of Nuke Talks


Dutch police Wednesday arrested seven suspects who belong to what they call "a network of radical Muslims."

Two were captured in the Hague after a 15-hour standoff that left one suspect and three policemen wounded.

Police have not said if the network is tied to last week's murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo Van Gogh, a vocal critic of Islamic extremism. A Muslim extremist has been charged with the killing.

Meanwhile, Spanish authorities are probing a possible link between the Van Gogh murder suspect and a Moroccan terror suspect jailed last year in Spain for alleged involvement in a string of bombings in Casablanca.

Also Wednesday, Spain's top anti-terrorism judge ordered two more suspects jailed in a failed plot to bomb the High Court building in Madrid. Thirty-five people have been jailed in the plot so far.
