A bag left by robbers who stole foreign currency from a plane in Gothenburg on Tuesday did not contain a bomb.

Prosecutor Peter Larsson was told the news by investigators on Thursday morning.

"The information I have received is that it contains no explosives," he told news agency TT.

Larsson would not reveal what was in the bag, saying that information was confidential.

"But it was a dummy," he said.

The bag is being examined by specially-trained technicians in Stockholm. Larsson said he did not know when the investigation would be completed.

"We're now looking for traces of the robbers in the bag - fingerprints or DNA."

He denied that the examination of the bag had taken a long time.

"You have to be very careful when looking at a thing like this, to make sure that it doesn't detonate."

"The examination must also be carried out carefully so that no clues are destroyed."

Police are continuing their investigation. A 37-year old man is being held suspected of robbery. A 39-year old man was arrested at the same time as him. He is suspected of aiding another robbery.
