German national arrested for trying to carry ‘Mother of Satan’ explosive onto passenger jet in Sweden
A SUSPECTED bomber has been arrested after allegedly trying to smuggle Mother Of Satan explosives onto a plane in Sweden.
He was stopped at Gothenburg’s Landvetter airport on Thursday morning trying to board a flight bound for an EU country.
The German national, in his twenties, sparked a major security response.
Part of the airport was shut down while a bomb squad assessed a device — believed to be a Mother Of Satan explosive.
Photos published by local media show a man wearing a white hooded top being led away by police at around 8am yesterday.
The suspected bomb is also seen in luggage on a security conveyor.
Mother Of Satan, or TATP, is a powerful homemade explosive made using over-the-counter products.
