Police in Spain have arrested a man who wanted to kill the country's prime minister. The 63-year-old man behind the plan had allegedly amassed an arsenal of weapons, including sniper rifles and a submachine gun.
Spanish police have detained a 63-year-old man in the northeastern Catalonia region who "wanted to kill" Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, authorities said on Thursday.
The 63-year-old had an "arsenal of weapons" at his home in the town of Terrassa, Catalan police said on Twitter, including more than a dozen firearms, sniper rifles and a submachine gun.
The arrest took place in September but was first reported Thursday by Spain's Publico newspaper. The suspect, a former private security guard, remains in custody but has not been charged.
