Dutch counter terrorism body warns fledgling Islamic radio station
The Dutch counter terrorism organisation NCTV is trying to have a fledgling Dutch Islamic radio stations closed down for transmitting 'jihadist ideas'.
Internet based Radio Ghurabaa has been broadcasting Dutch and English language sermons for just three weeks but the NCTV fears it could lead Dutch youngsters to travel to Syria and take part in a 'holy war'.
The organisation has contacted internet service provider Versio warning that the radio station may not be lawful. The station broadcasts speeches by Anwar al-Awlaki, said to be a leading light in the al-Qaida terror movement who was killed in a drone attack in Yemen in 2011.
