Suspected Islamic extremist 'built test bomb'
A suspected Islamic radical who is accused of planning a possible attack has told investigators in Austria that he built a test bomb.
Officials said the 17-year old told police that he did so while in Germany, where he met another suspected radical who is now under arrest there.
A spokesman for Austrian interior minister Wolfgang Sobotka said data found on the teenager's computer showed he had recently searched for instructions on how to build a bomb.
The suspect was arrested in his Vienna apartment on Friday after what police described as a tip from a foreign intelligence service.
Interior ministry officials claim he was in contact with radical "Albanian-Islamist" circles.
His lawyer denies he was planning an attack.
