Austrian authorities said Tuesday they arrested a second suspect in an attempted bombing of the US Embassy in Vienna.
Officials said they were treating him as a possible accomplice of a Bosnian arrested Monday after trying to enter the embassy with a backpack containing explosives.
The 42-year-old unemployed Bosnian was arrested after his bag - packed with at least two grenades and several handfuls of nails and screws apparently intended to serve as shrapnel - set off a metal detector at the entrance to the heavily fortified embassy guarded by US Marines.
The nationality of the second suspect was not immediately released.
