(CNN)An American accused of trying to take a live grenade and knife through airport security in the Philippines has been arrested, an airport official said.

Cipriano de Guzman was being held at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport after the weapons were discovered in his backpack during X-ray screening, airport manager Dante Basanta said Thursday.

"It is a case of illegal possession of an explosive device and illegal possession of a sharp object," said Col. Ricardo Layug with the Aviation Security Group of the Philippine National Police. "He definitely cannot leave the country. He has to face the charges."

Kurt Moyer, an official at the U.S. Embassy in Manila, said he was aware of the report, but had no information about the person who was detained.

Saw this on Phil news portion of CNN Philippines last night. Would bet the bank he is a dual citizen. But I suppose it makes for a more sensational story if his called an American

I'm just taking a wild guess that this is not the real story.
