Alerted by a detailed tip from Spanish colleagues, Dutch police arrested a man early Thursday and said he was suspected of preparing an attack on a concert in Rotterdam by an American rock band.Security and Justice Minister Stef Blok, in an interview with BNR radio, suggested the suspect may only have spread the threat on a social media platform, though Blok didn't give details.The Spaniard didn't appear to be a terror suspect, and police said a search of his home uncovered nothing to indicate he was linked to the threat.It wasn't clear what the nature of the threat to the concert was, or if the band's name played any role in the threat.The Civil Guard shared the information with Dutch authorities Wednesday and was investigating the threat, said the official, who spoke anonymously because the Civil Guard is still analyzing the threat.
