Spain: Moroccan arrested for threatening to blow off train

A Morocco man was nabbed Thursday for threatening to blow off a train traveling from Barcelona to Figueres.
The man who was on the train shouted out he would detonate a bomb, Spanish Europa Press reported citing passengers and train workers.
The passengers alerted the Catalonia police which nabbed him at Gerona.
Police reported that it was a hoax and that the man was carrying nothing harmful. The search of the train also revealed nothing.

The passengers were able to continue their journey after the man was arrested and the police search completed.
The man who was under an arrest warrant prior to the Thursday incident was put in custody and a judge on Friday instructed his return in prison.
