BRATISLAVA airport security forces detained a passenger who attempted to board a plane carrying a bomb in his luggage, the TASR newswire reported, citing the topky.sk news portal.

“I can confirm that this morning a passenger with luggage was identified at the Bratislava airport, which showed all the signs of an active explosive system,” airport director Ivan Trhlík told the news portal, as quoted by TASR.

The suspect was a Slovenian citizen and was en route to the Spanish city of Malaga.

The airport’s security is currently investigating whether he had any connection with a terrorist group due to the fact that Malaga is considered to be a centre of Islamic radicals, TASR wrote.

The detained man argued that the device in his luggage is intended to help people suffering from psoriasis.

In recent years there has not been “such an explicit situation” as this, TASR reported Trhlík as saying.
