Buenos Aires: Police in Argentina have arrested a man who allegedly walked into a radio station carrying a belt with fireworks and threatening to use them as explosives.

The security ministry says police arrested journalist Carlos Alberto Serbali in the office of state-run Radio Nacional in downtown Buenos Aires after he threatened to detonate a bomb inside the radio station on Wednesday.

 

President Barack Obama is on a two-day visit to Argentina and security measures have been heightened after the terrorist attack in Belgium. The building is located about a mile from the presidential palace where Obama met Argentine President Mauricio Macri.

Security Minister Patricia Bullrich tells the government's Telam news agency that authorities are still investigating and that she hopes the incident is unrelated to Obama's visit.
