Five arrested over terror plot

Five men suspected of building an explosive device intended for a terrorist attack in a Scandinavian country have been arrested by Bosnian police.

Three of the arrested were detained at the border while trying to leave Bosnia with the explosive device in the boot of their car, while the two others were arrested in Sarajevo.

The arrests were the result of a coordinated operation also involving officials from the Netherlands and Sweden.

The five suspects, including one Swedish and four Bosnian nationals, are suspected of having built the bomb in Bosnia after receiving "a request" from Scandinavia.
