German arrested for fake bombs placed during Zurich Love Parade
A German man who caused a bomb alert during the Love Parade in Zurich on Saturday is in custody after he confessed to police.
The 31-year-old placed a backpack with the fake bombs on the course of the parade. The bomb squad used a robot to check the package before determining it was a hoax.
The man appears to be known already to German police – but not for placing fake bombs. There’s no suggestion of any links to extremist organisations.
The man continues to be questioned.
