Update: Vikernes has now been released and no charges have been filed.
Euro News (see article at this location) has reported that Burzum's Varg Vikernes has been arrested in France on what authorities have called "suspicion of planning a massacre."
Vikernes' wife had legally purchased four guns, but suspicions had already been raised when the manifesto of Anders Behring Breivik, the man responsible for killing 77 in Oslo two years ago, had reportedly been received by the musician. French authorities searched his home for weapons and explosives and the prosecutor has deemed him "likely to prepare a large-scale act of terrorism.”
Vikernes served 21 years in prison for the murder of Mayhem's Euronymous, as well as receiving convictions for burning four churches. He moved to France with his wife and children following his release in 2009.
