Dutch teen tweets terrorist threat to American Airlines

Posted: Updated:

A teenage girl from the Netherlands was arrested after she tweeted a terrorist threat to American Airlines, according to Business Insider.

Wessel Stole, an official spokesperson for the Dutch police, told Business Insider, "We're not in a state that we can communicate any state of charges at this point. We just thought it was necessary to bring this out mostly because of the fact that it caused a great deal of interest on the Internet." 

The girl named "Sarah" tweeted: "@AmericanAir Hello my name's Ibrahim and I'm from Afghanistan. I'm part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I'm gonna do something really big bye."

American Airlines didn't take too kindly to her tweet and responded with: "Sarah, we take these threats very seriously. Your IP address and details will be forwarded to security and the FBI."

The girl immediately tweeted back saying she was sorry and had been joking around.

Her account has been deleted.
