Man arrested at Paris airport

Man arrested at Paris airport

Quote:
Police have arrested a baggage handler at Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport, after two automatic weapons, plastic explosives and a detonator were found in his car.

The man, who is reportedly of Algerian origin, was arrested late on Saturday after a tip-off from a member of the public who saw a weapon in a car boot at the airport.

Other members of the man's family have been taken in for questioning, and the man himself can be held for up to four days without charge.

Just 4 days

*CAN* be held for up to 4 days without charging the baggage handler? is there such a thing as having a license to cart plastic explosives around in your car...hmmm.

Well, no, but they have to actually charge him with the crime and follow through with the process rather than just holding him. Seems like four days is actually a long time for that.
