Still lots more to find out, it's a developing story (http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8280959/woman-has-bomb-strapped-to-her-body)

It sounds like it's right out of a movie or TV crime show. That poor girl.

I'm surprised that the police have only evacuated half a street though.

CNN is reporting she's been released. Thank goodness. Not a lot of details of exactly what happened or what the device was.

I cannot imagine how terrified this poor girl must have been. I am so glad to have read it was removed.

Had to go all the way to page 5 to find this thread. :lol: Apparently the suspect has been arrested in Louisville, KY at his ex-wife's home. He's expected to be extradited back to Australia.

So the bomb was fake? How good of a fake must of it been? The releases at the time were all that it was a "very sophisticated device".

Also- glad they caught the guy.
