Police on Monday arrested a man who threatened to detonate explosives he had placed inside a car parked outside the offices of a French-language tabloid newspaper.

Officers found two propane gas cylinders typically used for campsite cooking and a five-liter drum of gasoline inside the vehicle parked outside the Journal de Montreal, said Montreal police spokesman Daniel Lacoursiere.

Newspaper employees identified the man a former Journal de Montreal worker embroiled in a labor dispute for more than a year, the daily La Presse reported.
