  • The Lebanese man had made several calls to the embassy in Madrid

A Lebanese man has been held in Benalmádena after threatening to attack the British Embassy in Madrid.

The alarm was raised earlier this month after diplomatic staff received a series of phone calls in which the caller said that an attack was imminent.

"I have nothing to lose and nothing matters to me," said the caller.
