"TNT explosives? I'm just going fishing!"
Earlier reports suggested the 30 year old had 144 grams of plastic explosives, containing 85% of RDX by weight, according to the RIA Novosti news agency.
A police source confirmed that the woman has a criminal record. She came to one of Moscow’s parks to sell the explosives to fishermen, but they refused to buy it and instead called the police.
Moscow police received a number of portable explosive detectors after the terrorist attack at Domodedovo Airport in January, but several tests resulted in false alarms.
