Suicide bomber in central Stockholm
Stockholm News ^ | December 10, 2010

Posted on 12/11/2010 1:50:06 PM PST by La Lydia

First exploded a car at the busy shopping street Drottninggatan in central Stockholm. Then came another explosion some distance away and one man died. According to news agency TT, the man had blown himself to death. There was a bag on the ground filled with nails, according to newspaper Expressen.

Alarm calls poured in to the Emergency Services from concerned residents about the explosions in central Stockholm on Saturday afternoon. But the initial info from the police was extremely unclear. First there was talk of two cars that exploded, later it proved to be just one...

At Bryggargatan a man was found dead. According to news agency TT the police assume that the man was not damaged in the car explosion, but that he somehow blasted himself.

According to the police there was a bag at the site, but that is unconfirmed information. According to newspaper Expressen the bag will be filled with nails. Witnesses have seen how the police bomb squad robot has been taking care of the bag. There is also information that the bomb squad continues to look for explosives at the deceased man.

At least four ambulances were sent to the scene. Two people were taken to hospital with minor injuries, they were in the vicinity of the explosions. The adjacent streets are cordoned off....

After the explosions in central Stockholm, the Security Service and the Stockholm Police are in a meeting. There is still much confusion after the explosions. The Security Service do not want to make any statement in the current situation, and neither want to go out with information about if safety measures have been increased in Stockholm.

They know its Islam but its politically incorrect to blame it on uh - the “youth” who perpetrated today’s terrorist attack.

We haven't been to Sweden since 1997... sounds like a lot has changed since then. I'm just stunned by your statement above, Scanian. Depressing...

Malmö, according to friends, is supposedly more than 50%.

Lund isn’t too far behind and Helsingborg has a sizeable muzzie population as well, they tell me.

I haven’t been there in about 8 years myself and there was a whole lot of changing going on then. But it sounds like it really has accelerated.

Copenhagen has had a big influx as well.

Sweden is a bit like France. Most immigrants live in large estates outside the main city centers.

So you can walk around the old town in Stockholm without seeing too many. You are inside the safe perimeter so to speak. Same as Paris. Though as happened tonight. The perimeter is not secured.

Cheers.

The video starts with a FedEx ad talking about Djibouti (formerly known as French Somaliland).

Have they said anything about the nationality of the bomber? I'm guessing a Bavarian Catholic still mad at Sweden because of King Gustavus Adolphus' intervention in the Thirty Years' War.

What are Somalians doing in the West? Why don’t they emigrate to Saudi or Iran, where there are more jobs and more money.

This whole migration process from 3rd world hell-holes to the West is a typical evil scheme of the UN that is mostly run by 3rd worlders but financially supported by the West.

Notice that China does not accept immigrants. They’re smart — they’ll survive.

Why the hell Napolitano doesn't mandate that every American airline flight carry a 5 gallon jug of pig fat in the baggage compartment is beyond me.

Advertise that an explosion will surely coat all the debris, including human, with pig fat. It might work one hell of a lot less confrontationally than TSA putting their hands down every ones pants.

Hey it worked for Col. "BlackJack" Pershing in the Phillipines in 1907.....worth a try.

The below are “quick” English translations from the newspaper Aftonbladet from several articles: Videos are also at the link...(You can clearly see/hear two different explosions in the car)...

SAPO was terror alert - before blasting
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article8265933.ab

SAPO: “We have good control of the situation”

About ten minutes before the explosions sent an email to TT, also addressed to the Security Service, where a man turns to “Sweden and Swedish people.” He refers to the Swedish silence on Lars Vilks paintings, the Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan, saying that “now to your children, daughters and sisters to die like that our brothers and sisters and children are dying. “

- Our actions will speak for themselves. As long as you do not stop your war against Islam and degrading to the Prophet and your stupid support for the pig Vilks, “says the man.
“Do not fear death”

Then the man calls all Muslims in Sweden to “stop suck up and humiliate you.” He ends the message with yet another call for “all the mujahideen in Europe and Sweden”: - Now it’s time to turn to, wait no longer. Come up with whatever you are although it is a knife and I know you have more than one knife to come by. Fear not, fear not a prison, do not fear death.

Security Service does not comment

SAPO has not wanted to comment on the content of TT or confirm if you received the email, which contains audio files where both Swedish and Arabic are spoken. TT has not been confirmed that the mail has to break to make.

Where in the Middle East

There is nothing in the audio files of the man who speaks belong to any organization. However, he said he had been in the Middle East and he would ask his family for forgiveness because he lied to them. - I never went to the Middle East to work or earn money, I went there for jihad, “said the man.

The same e-mail

The Security Service now confirms to Aftonbladet that they have the same email also sent to TT. - It was added to our registry. It is submitted for verification to our administrators, “said Michael Gunn, officer in charge of SAPO. He would not comment on the content or who signed the email, but admits that it is the same email. - I can see on the mailing list that, among other things have gone for us and to TT.

No one had time to see the email

None of the Security Police had time to see the email before the explosion in central Stockholm, just over two months ago, raised its terror preparedness SAPO. - There is a specific threat in Sweden. But we are now at high levels means that we have good control over the situation. We say that there is no immediate threat, said SAPO Head Anders Danielsson then.

SAPO following investigation

Is this attack, coupled with the increase in the contingency that you did then? - The interconnection unfortunately, I can not answer. The preliminary investigation is still pending before the Stockholm police. SAPO follow the investigation, “said Gunn.

“Bomb The man did not act alone ‘
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article8266091.ab

Terrorism expert Magnus Ranstorp: He has probably had the support of groups abroad

The suicide bomber did not act alone. According to terrorism expert Magnus Ranstorp, he probably had the support of groups abroad. - It is extremely worrying that the terror directed indiscriminately against civilians in Sweden. There is a new trend, “he says.

If the suicide bomber involved in any of these networks is too early to tell, says terrorism expert Magnus Ranstorp. But he has not acted alone. - You do not sit at home and engaged himself to a video of the assault in Afghanistan or Iraq and think enough is enough, I go to the inner city of Stockholm and blow me in the air. There are other individuals who have assisted in the process. This individual is not acting himself. You also need a psychological support to carry out a suicide attack. - In my experience it would have been one thing if it’s only been one car fires. But the self-assembling pipe bombs and sacrifice your life - I would be very surprised if he was not in contact with other individuals.

In addition to the dead man, two people have been hospitalized. - There are two people have been near the car. They have been taken to hospital with minor injuries, said Petra Sjölander, information officer at the Stockholm police.

May have link

Police are now investigating whether the two events have nothing to do with each. - We are working calmly and methodically to identify what has happened to find out if the events are related, and if so in what way, “said Sjolander.

Is not it very unlikely that they fit together?

- One can speculate in.

According to several people ran from the scene. Could it be the perpetrators?

- It may be reasonable to run on the slams. But if there is to it slams or to be made to the slamming we do not know, “said Petra Sjölander. Immediately after the explosions the police blocked by much of the area and technicians are investigating the scene.
The man still unidentified

At 19:30 o’clock the dead man was not identified, and an hour later at 20:30 they had not yet moved the body from the scene. Many residents were also at the barricades, exclusion from their homes while waiting for the police technical undersökngar will become clear.

- There is a huge police go-around here. The biggest I’ve seen in Stockholm, Aftonbladet’s reporter says Anders Munck.
SAPO in meeting

Aftonbladet has tried to reach representatives of the Security Service, but they are included in the meeting on the evening’s events.

One blew himself up with grenades
Should have had a backpack full of spikes and bombs
http://www.aftonbladet.se/nyheter/article8265883.ab

The man who died in Bryggargatan blew himself to death. He carried six interconnected pipe bombs but only one exploded. He also had a backpack full of nails and a suspected explosive. - Had it exploded at Queen Street had been a massacre, “says a source .

Police bomb technicians examined the dead man’s bag by using a bomb robot. Radiographs show that it contained a large quantity of nails and an unknown substance which is suspected to be explosives.
Shouted in Arabic

According to witnesses on the ground should the man have shouted something in Arabic before the bomb detonated. According to Aftonbladet the man died of a pipe bombs which he carried on the body. On the site they found five pipe bombs believed to have been connected in series. For some reason the cables were torn between charges of leaving only one of the pipe bombs exploded. It was almost certainly the one who took the man’s life.

People were shocked

Some bystanders were shocked and had hearing loss when the explosive charge fired. When Aftonbladet contacting SAPO, they refer all questions regarding the evening’s explosions at Stockholm police. But the terror alert in Sweden has not changed during the day. - In the case of preparedness, it is unchanged, “said Cathy Sevcik at Security Service press function.

from link at 48: An audio file sent to Swedish news agency TT shortly before the blast referred to jihad, saying:

'Now the Islamic state has been created. We now exist here in Europe and in Sweden. We are a reality. I don't want to say more about this. Our actions will speak for themselves.'

According to something called the “Islamic Center” in Malmö, there are around 45,000 people “with a muslim background” there. That’s around 7% of the population. However, there are parts of Malmö, like Rosengård, where 86% have a foreign background (both parents from another country), many of which are muslims.
