Stockholm: Swedish police say they have
detained a Turkish man wanted in Belgium on suspicion of

Security police spokesman Patrik Peter says the man was
arrested at Stockholm`s Arlanda airport on Friday after
arriving on a plane from Syria.

It is unclear if the man planned to stay in Sweden or had
tickets to continue his journey to another destination.

Peter said today that Belgium issued a European arrest
warrant for the man several months ago, amid suspicions of
terrorism and other crimes, but declined to give any more
details and did not identify the suspect.

A Swedish court has up to 30 days to decide if the man,
who is in his 30s, should be extradited to Belgium.
