A Jamaican detained at a Florida airport after bomb parts were found in his luggage said he intended to blow up a pipe bomb on a tree stump in Jamaica and to show his friends how to make explosives like those used in Iraq, U.S. investigators said on Wednesday.

Kevin Brown, 32, who was arrested at Orlando International Airport on Tuesday, made an initial court appearance, standing silently in a white jail jumpsuit and leg shackles before U.S. Magistrate Karla Spaulding.

Spaulding scheduled a bond hearing for Thursday at which Assistant U.S. Attorney Vincent Citro said he will provide some details on the case.
