Particle collider Scientist was arrested but no one is giving any details ...yet

CBC and European news agencies are all reporting the same vague reports.

A scientist at the facility of the world's largest particle collider has been arrested on suspicion of terror links, according to French officials. The man, reportedly an employee at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, was one of two brothers arrested on Thursday in southeast France for suspected al-Qaeda links. The Large Hadron Collider, which lies underground near the Franco-Swiss border, is a powerful particle collider that aims to recreate conditions in the universe not long after the Big Bang.


Where is the rest of the story?? Who was arrested?

Its certainly a long-shot, but I wonder if he played any role in the failures they've had at the LHC every time they get ready to power things up.

What's the reason, trying to cause a catastrophe of amazing proportions? Just trying to cause failures to make the project cost more, thus causing the 'west' to waste money and get more in debt? Theft of information to create their own crazybombs of some kind?

Should be interesting if more information comes out about this..I'd be surprised if he played a role in the failures though.

"He was not a Cern employee and performed his research under a contract with an outside institute. His work did not bring him into contact with anything that could be used for terrorism," it said. - (It being CERN)

BBC report

There's a wee bit more info there.

Its possible he was working on nuclear bomb research for AQ. Particle colliders can be used to simulate certain aspects, especially miniaturization.
