Counter-terrorism police in Australia arrested a teen because they feared he might be carrying a bomb.
According to the Herald Sun, heavily armed police who overwhelmed the recently-turned 17-year-old as he was being driven by his mother to a mosque. They searched a bag he had with him before finding improvised explosive devices inside the family home.
Only an asthma pump was in the bag, but the police force’s bomb squad found three pipe bombs believed to have been hidden in the boy’s bedroom of the northern Melbourne suburb house, writes the Herald Sun.
Police have spent days scouring the house for more homemade explosive devices and yesterday widened the search to a nearby park and creek.
