Two people of Syrian origin have been arrested in Geneva on suspicion of transporting ‘explosives and toxic gases’ as part of a probe into a terror threat.

Traces of explosives were found in the suspects’ car, but toxic gas was not, Geneva prosecutor Olivier Jornot revealed today.

Mr Jornot said the two men, who spoke Arabic, had just arrived in Geneva. More arrests are expected to be made in the coming days amid heightened security on Switzerland’s border with France.
