THE HAGUE (AFP) - Dutch police have arrested a teenaged girl after she allegedly tweeted a threat to American Airlines posing as an al-Qaeda member, a police spokesman said on Monday.

The 14-year-old girl named Sarah "reported to the police this morning accompanied by a relative", Rotterdam police's Roland Ekkers said.

"She's been taken into custody with a hearing against her to start soon," he told AFP.

Sarah apparently posted the message that landed her in hot water on social network Twitter on Sunday morning.
