BRUSSELS (AP) - Dutch prosecutors say police have detained two men in Amsterdam on suspicion of involvement in providing weapons used in the deadly November 2015 terror attacks in Paris.

Prosecutors said Friday that the men, aged 29 and 31, were detained Tuesday following an investigation by French, Belgian and Dutch detectives. Computers, data carriers, documents and cell phones were seized from their homes.

Prosecutors say in a statement, “the suspicion against them is that they were involved in some way in delivering the weapons” used by Islamic extremists who killed 130 concertgoers at the Bataclan venue and other Paris sites on Nov. 13, 2015.

The 29-year-old suspect appeared before an investigating judge Friday who ordered him detained for two weeks. Prosecutors say the other suspect has been released for health reasons. Their identities were not released.
