A group of terrorists believed to be Palestinians and armed with SAM-7 rockets is suspected of having crossed the French border into Belgium in a van over the weekend, Belgian security service authorities said. These authorities suspect the rockets may have already been passed on to other collaborators and indicate their final destination may well be Schiphol Airport near Amsterdam. Observers here note that the Belgium-Netherlands border checks are presently quite lax and would facilitate such a crossing. According to Belgian authorities, the terrorists may have entered Europe from North Africa in a vehicle with false license plates.
