I don't even know what to say about this.

No, really.  I don't even know what to say about this.  It has left me at a complete loss for words. 

Irish police have released a man held over an explosives find, after Slovakian authorities admitted planting them in his luggage.

The explosive was one of eight pieces of contraband placed with unsuspecting passengers at Bratislava Airport last weekend, broadcaster RTE reported.

The 49-year-old unwittingly brought the material into Dublin when he returned from his Christmas holidays.

He was arrested on Tuesday morning but has since been released without charge.

Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern said he was very concerned that Irish police had not been alerted for three days.

Airport security detected seven of the illicit items, but the eighth - 90g of research development explosive - managed to escape detection.

Slovakian police alerted their Irish counterparts on Tuesday morning, and the man's flat near the city centre was cordoned off while bomb disposal experts removed the explosives for further examination.

The Slovakian minister for the interior had expressed his government's "profound regret" to Mr Ahern.

An Irish government spokesman said Mr Ahern has "ordered a full report into what has transpired".

What's worse - that the Slovakians initially thought, "Hey, you know what would be a great idea?  Let's put a shitload of explosives in some dumb fuck's luggage!"; that they didn't bother to tell the Irish authorities, "Hey, you know what we thought would be a great idea?  Putting a shitload of explosives in some dumb fuck's luggage!"; or that the Irish missed one of the shitloads of explosives in some dumb fuck's luggage.
