2 Dutchmen Held in Bomb Incident

Two young Dutchmen, 25-year-old Hugo Muller and 26-year-old Rudolf Meyer, were remanded for one week today by a Dutch magistrate. The two men, both known for their contacts with leftist organizations, are suspected of complicity in the May 25 Ben Gurion Airport explosion.

A man who died when his suitcase exploded when opened-by security agents, carried Muller’s passport. Muller himself reportedly told police first that he had lost it, then that he had given it to a member of the Bader-Meinhof group to enable him to flee West Germany where he was wanted by police. The arrests involved the Bader Meinhof group in the airport explosion. Dutch police said more arrests are likely to follow.
