Polish police announced today that they have arrested a man who was planning to detonate a four-ton bomb in front of the parliament building in Warsaw.

The suspect, a 45-year-old scientist at the University of Agriculture in Krakow, was in possession of illegal explosives, guns and ammunition.

Polish television, quoting sources close to the investigation, reported that the man allegedly planned to copy methods used by Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik.

Breivik murdered 77 people in a bomb attack in Oslo and shooting spree on the nearby island of Utøya on 22 July 2011

The Polish suspect does not belong to a specific political group or party.

Nevertheless, Polish prosecutors claim he was motivated by xenophobia, and nationalistic and anti-Semitic ideas.

The man, an explosives expert, is refusing to be submitted to psychiatric testing.

He was found in possession of detonators and self-made bombs.

The man has been in police custody since 9th November. Two of his colleagues have also been arrested on suspicion of illegally storing weapons.

“The case looks very serious,” Pawel Gras, a spokeseman for prosecuting authorities, told radio station TOK FM.

“We know that the targets appeared to include the president, the parliament and the government.”
