French police have just arrested a 26-year-old Russian-Ukrainian man on suspicion of trying to make explosives and planning to commit acts of violence.

A man suffered severe burns after Tuesday’s explosion in a hotel room in Roissy-en-France, near Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport.

Investigators found evidence of equipment and materials used to make bombs in his room, the National Counterterrorism Prosecutor’s Office said.

According to French media, guns and fake passports were also found.

Anti-terrorism prosecutors have opened an investigation.

A source told Reuters news agency that they were working with France’s domestic intelligence agency.
