Polish police arrest suspected bus bomb-maker

WARSAW: Polish police on Tuesday detained a man suspected of carrying out a home-made bomb attack last week that injured one person in the southwestern city of Wroclaw.
"He is a 22-year-old man of Polish nationality, a third-year university student," police chief Jaroslaw Szymczyk told reporters.
The suspect was arrested at a relative's flat, Szymczyk added.
An explosive device was found last Thursday hidden in a plastic bag on a bus in Wroclaw.
The man accused of planting the home-made bomb, which resembled a pressure cooker packed with nails, had just gotten off the bus.
After passengers alerted the bus driver to the presence of a suspicious package, he made an emergency stop and left it at a bus shelter.
Shortly afterwards, the device blew up and lightly injured a passer-by.
Since Thursday, police have been hunting down the suspect, whose face could be seen in CCTV footage taken on the bus and which has since been aired on Polish television. — AFP
