Taipei, April 25 (CNA) A man was arrested Friday at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, one day after he threatened to put a bomb at the country's main gateway, the Aviation Police Bureau said. Police were informed Thursday that the man, who identified himself as a college student surnamed Lee, had claimed that he would put a bomb in the airport. The man had called up a local media organization to inform it about his plan. Police were able to track him down; they found him at the airport's Terminal 2 and arrested him. Earlier this year, Lee also approached the media and charity groups to threaten to commit crimes, saying he would rather stay in jail because he could not find a job. In February, he threatened to bomb the Presidential Office, but was taken into custody by police in Tainan City, the bureau said. (By Bien Chin-feng and Lee Hsin-Yin)
