Suspect In Sept Budapest Bomb Attack Arrested
Members of the Counter Terrorism Centre (TEK) have arrested a suspect in the September 24 Budapest bomb attack, public television M1 reported on Wednesday citing TEK sources.

News portals and Ripost received the same information but MTI was unable to confirm the reports after contacting several authorities. Spokesperson of the central investigation authority Andrea Nagy said no information could be released about the investigation for the time being.

Two police officers, a 23-year-old woman, and a 26-year-old man, were injured when walking past a ground-level shop near the Grand Boulevard in central Budapest, doing their regular rounds, at 10.36pm on September 24.

A homemade shrapnel bomb was used in the explosion.
