Australia 'collar-bomb' suspect held in US

An Australian man has been arrested in the US in connection with an attack on a teenager who had a fake bomb strapped to her neck, the FBI has said.

The suspect, 50-year-old Paul "Doug" Peters, was arrested in Kentucky, in an operation involving the FBI and Australian police.

Madeleine Pulver, 18, was targeted at her home in Sydney earlier this month. It took 10 hours to remove the fake device.
