Police say they have arrested a man in his 50s for making a false threat Monday to blow up the National Assembly.
The man, whose identity was withheld, allegedly called a lawmaker's office earlier in the day to claim he planted an explosive at the assembly complex in Seoul.
His motive remains unknown.
An investigation into the case is underway.
