Arrests over 'Swiss IBM bomb plot'

Police find explosives as they foil plans to blow up research centre, media says.

    Police discovered "explosive and further items in their car" as well as a note "indicating a planned attack on the branch of an international company," Jeannette Balmer, a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutors office, said.

    All of those arrested remain in detention, she said.

    "IBM has been notified by Swiss police authorities about an investigation and is co-operating accordingly," Chris Sciacca, an IBM spokesman, said.

    He declined to answer further questions, citing the police investigation.
