Pole held in plot to bomb Parliament

WARSAW— A Polish university researcher driven by nationalistic and anti-Semitic hatred was arrested for planning to detonate a 4-ton bomb in front of the Parliament building in Warsaw with the president, prime minister, government ministers, and lawmakers inside, authorities said Tuesday.

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said the suspect and his plot were discovered as investigators looked into Polish links to the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik. Polish security officials have said that Breivik bought small amounts of material for his bomb-making in Poland.
