    An Iraqi man was detained in a hostel in Poland on suspicion of terrorism.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Polsat News broadcaster, the 48-years-old man was detained on Sunday in the city of Lodz in central Poland, having arrived there a few days before hand. Prior to his trip to Poland, he reportedly had been in Switzerland before going to Sweden.

    Police reportedly discovered explosives and the detainee's notes, which allegedly may indicate that he was planning to commit a terrorist attack in Lodz.

    The authorities ruled to detain the man for two months while investigators from the Polish Internal Security Agency (ABW) determine whether the man was acting alone or as part of a criminal group.
