LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A 50-year-old man accused of strapping a suspected explosive device around the neck of an 18-year-old woman near Sydney, Australia, earlier this month was arrested Monday more than 9,000 miles away, Australian law enforcement officials said.

"We are enormously relieved that an arrest has been made," Bill Pulver, the alleged victim's father, told reporters. "These past two weeks have been a very difficult time for us."
