Belgium: Iranian arrested in plane bombing plot

It looks like there's more to this story.

Belgian police have arrested an Iranian who said he was involved in a plot to bomb a passenger plane in Belgium, a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutors office said on Thursday.

"I can confirm that an Iranian citizen was arrested last week after stating that he was approached to commit a bombing on a plane," spokeswoman Lieve Pellens said.

Pellens said she was unable to confirm local media reports that the plot involved liquid explosives and targeted flights from Charleroi airport in the south of the country.
