Hungary detains group heading to capital with explosives, finds bomb lab

Via Reuters:

Hungarian anti-terrorist police last week detained four people heading to the capital with explosives in their car, and found a bomb-making laboratory set up for a mass killing, the unit’s chief said on Tuesday, declining to rule out a link to Islamist militants. …

After the suspects in the car were detained, a subsequent house search revealed a bomb-making laboratory with “explosives and devices that were suitable for killing people to the utmost extent”, Hajdu told the state television channel M1.

He said police had also caught two other people with submachine guns, ammunition and silencers in their car, and that it was not clear whether the two groups were connected.

Asked whether the suspects had jihadist links, he said: “Let me reply to that in the next few days.”

Hajdu declined to disclose the suspects’ identities, nationalities or presumed motives, but added that the case had an international dimension.'”
