Man arrested in Cyprus suspected of planning terror attack against Israelis

Cypriot police suspect a man they arrested this week of planning an attack on Israeli interests on the island after they found almost two tonnes of ammonium nitrate in his basement, local newspapers reported on Friday.

Ammonium nitrate is a fertiliser but in large quantities can be mixed with other substances to make a powerful explosive.

The 26-year-old man, Lebanese-born but with a Canadian passport, was detained by police in the EU member state on May 27, after authorities discovered the hoard in the basement of a house.
