GENEVA - Two people of Syrian origin were arrested in the Geneva region on Friday on suspicion of making, hiding and transporting explosives or toxic gas, Switzerland's Attorney General said on Saturday.

Criminal proceedings have been opened against the two under a law prohibiting groups such as al-Qaida and Islamic State, a statement from the Attorney General's office said. It did not give any names or other details about the two, but said more information would be released later.

On Friday, Swiss television and the local newspaper Tribune de Geneve had reported that two Syrian men were arrested and traces of explosives were found in their car.
