A Polish man was arrested on Tuesday after he allegedly attempted to blow up Parliament.
The man, who has not been named, was reportedly motivated by far-right nationalism and antisemitism.
According to Reuters, prosecutor Piotr Krason told a news conference: “The suspect does not belong to a political group or party.
“He claims that he was acting on nationalistic, antisemitic and xenophobic motives.”
Polish police are also investigating an attack on more than 20 gravestones in a Jewish cemetery in Lodz, which occurred on Monday evening.
