THE NETHERLANDS -- A group of students of Iranian origin studying in the Netherlands is going to take legal action against the Dutch government for barring them from courses related to nuclear technology

The ban imposed by the government aims to prevent Iranian students from obtaining secret information relating to nuclear weapons.

The Iranian activists say the move breaches the Dutch constitution and international agreements.

Rather than targeting an entire group, they say the Dutch government should do more to protect such sensitive information.
