Pakistani officers arrested a man at Karachi airport after batteries and an electrical circuit were found in his shoes as he tried to board a plane for the Middle East, an official said.
The 30-year-old civil engineer allegedly told interrogators he came from Pakistan's northwestern province Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where Taliban and Islamist militants have a presence, and had been scheduled to travel to Muscat by Thai Airways.
Mohammad Munir, Airport Security Force spokesman, said the bearded man, whom he named as Faiz Mohammad, was arrested when a scanner sounded an alarm.
The suspect was not found in possession of explosives, but Munir described the circuit discovery as "worrying".
"He was on the way to board flight TG 507 for Muscat. After the machine gave the alarm, we checked him manually," said the spokesman.
"We have recovered four live batteries and a circuit, with a button to switch it on and off," Munir said.
The suspect allegedly told investigators he was living in Karachi, Pakistan's southern city, but was planning to return to Muscat, where he had previously worked for a construction company, to set up his own business.
"The devices found from the suspect suggested that if he was carrying explosive material, he could have easily blown the explosives up in the plane," said Munir.

So Holder’s luck strategy kept us safe?
They were just shoes with artificial intelligence! They’re very useful...
Lister: Sometimes, I think it’s cruel giving machines a personality. My mate Petersen once bought a pair of shoes with Artificial Intelligence. ‘Smart Shoes’ they were called. It was a neat idea. No matter how blind drunk you were, they could always get you home. But he got rattled one night in Oslo and woke up the next morning in Burma. You see, his shoes got bored going from his local to his flat. They wanted to see the world, you know. He had a hell of a job getting rid of them. No matter who he sold them to, they’d show up again the next day. He tried to shut them out, but they just kicked the door down.
Rimmer: Is this true?
Lister: Yeah. The last thing I heard, they sort of... robbed a car and drove it into a canal. They couldn’t steer, you see.
Lister: Yeah. Petersen was really, really blown away about it. He went to see a priest. The priest told him... he said it was alright and all that, when shoes are happy that they’d get into heaven. You see, it turns out shoes have ‘soles’.
Rimmer: Ah, what a sad story. Wait a minute.
[Thinks for a minute]
Rimmer: How did they open the car door?
Another Pakistani driven crazy by ObamaCare.

Alright now, let’s not jump to conclusions. . .
Would you believe I’m trying to keep my shoe style current?
Okay, would you believe these shoes help me walk the circuit?

Probably some of those sneakers with the lights that flash when you walk like I see kids wearing.
He was just headed to a Pakistani tea party.
It is just the new footwear from Islamosoft.
His Tinker Toy kit was in the overhead luggage rack. He gladly paid $40 to put it there.
This was a test of your passenger screening system. The terrorists of your area, in voluntary cooperation with the Taliban and other radical authorities, have developed this test to keep you dead in the event of an error.
If this had been an actual terrorist attack, you would have been advised where in your area to scatter your dismembered body parts.
Did he have a red Palin in 2012 shirt on? Was he madly waving a “Don’t Tread On Me” flag as he was being cuffed?
Obama couldn’t be reached for comment, he was golfing near the water hazard in Nashville, TN.
