GENEVA - Geneva police said on Saturday they had detained a man who stopped a tram in the Swiss city and was found to be carrying radical Islamist literature.

Police closed off the area while a bomb disposal unit inspected his two shopping bags, Geneva police spokesman Christophe Fortis told Reuters.

The bomb alert, which halted traffic, coincided with a pro-Palestinian demonstration set to be held in front of the UN European headquarters in Geneva at 12 p.m. GMT.
