Polish authorities have arrested a man who was planning to detonate a four-ton car bomb in front of the Parliament building in Warsaw while the president, prime minister, government ministers and lawmakers were inside.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that they arrested the suspect in Krakow on Nov. 9. They say he is a 45-year-old Polish researcher employed at the University of Agriculture in Krakow who had access to chemistry laboratories. He was in illegal possession of explosive materials, munitions and guns.
