A suspected suicide bomber was led away in her bathrobe after police foiled an ISIS plot to blow up the Austrian Defence Ministry in Vienna.
The woman is understood to be the wife of a 25-year-old who was arrested last month on suspicion of supporting Islamic State.
It is thought the woman, 36, was planning a suicide bombing attack in the name of the terror group and was arrested in the Lower Baden district of Austria Wednesday night.
Her husband was arrested in September on terrorism charges after detectives found links to Belgian terrorists in his apartment, according to Krone.
A month later, the officers returned and handcuffed the woman, who was led away in her bathrobe.
Police discovered the couple had been talking on Skype, where she revealed her terror plot.
She had planned to walk into the defence ministry with an explosive belt and detonating it.
