Polish prosecutors said today that police have arrested a man who was planning to carry out a terror attack on the parliament building in Warsaw.
The attack was timed to occur while the president, prime minister, government ministers and MPs were inside.
Officials said that they had arrested the suspect in Krakow on November 9.
They did not name the man but described him as a 45-year-old Polish academic researcher with access to chemistry labs and who had explosive materials, munitions and guns.
Prosecutors said he was motivated by nationalistic, xenophobic and anti-semitic ideas but did not formally belong to any political group.
The man has confessed in part to the allegations made against him.
If he is convicted he could face up to five years in prison.
Two others working with him have also been arrested for the illegal possession of weapons.
