US Man Arrested for Attempting to Smuggle Explosives onto Plane

US authorities announced the arrest of a man who tried to carry explosives in luggage on board a flight from Lehigh Valley Airport in the US state of Pennsylvania to Florida.

Airport security found explosives in a suitcase belonging to 40-year-old Mark Muffley, according to court documents released Wednesday.

The Department of Transportation Security asked the man to come to the security post, but he did not respond to the invitation, and the cameras followed his departure from the airport.

The FBI later arrested the man at his home in Lansford, Pennsylvania.

The man is due to appear in court on Thursday.
