Plane emergency as 'Mother of Satan explosive found in luggage'”

A man arrested at a Swedish airport for allegedly trying to travel with suspected explosive material was released on Friday (Oct 6) due to no evidence of a crime, authorities said.

Parts of a departure hall at Landvetter Airport was cordoned off by police on Thursday after security screening detected the suspicious object.

Part of the airport was shut down while a bomb squad assessed a device - believed to be a Mother Of Satan explosive.

Police reportedly found two cans containing a brown liquid and a third containing a white liquid which are now being tested, according to the local newspaper Göteborgs-posten.

An image published by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet shows the man being escorted from the airport by officers.

The suspect was charged with attempting public destruction.

Local media reported the man had been carrying containers filled with TATP, an explosive commonly used in terror attacks.

The man was attempting to fly to another European Union country but was arrested going through the security check for domestic flights, The Local reports.

He has been denied bail and remains in custody.

The local newspaper Goteborgs-Posten wrote that the man was a German citizen and that luggage had acetone peroxide.

It has been used in several recent terror attacks - including the Parsons Green bombing last month and the Manchester Arena attack that left 22 people dead.

TATP was used in deadly terror attacks in Paris in 2015 and Brussels the following year.
