Finnish Bomb Arrest Made After Explosives Found

(Reuters) - Finnish police have arrested an 18-year-old man after searching his home and finding items that can be used to make explosive devices.

Police said Thursday they were tipped off after finding 10 kg of ammonium nitrate fertilizer from Poland addressed to the suspect.

They said they have not found any connection to the Norway bomb and gun attack in which an anti-Islam extremist killed 76 people on July 22.
