    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.
