Dutch authorities have freed without charge two Yemenis living in the US arrested on Monday for transporting unusual objects on a transatlantic flight.

They boarded the flight in Chicago, and the US authorities warned the Dutch they were travelling with several mobile phones, one taped to a bottle, and 7000 dollars in cash.

There was speculation the men were engaged in a dry run for a terrorist operation. The Dutch have expressed concern at US airport security procedures, and say the situation could have been handled earlier.
