Blasts rock Swedish capital
CBC News (Canada) ^

Posted on 12/11/2010 3:21:02 PM PST by quesney

At least one person, reportedly a suicide bomber, was killed when two blasts went off Saturday in a busy shopping district in the Swedish capital of Stockholm.

One of the blasts was thought to be related to a car bomb, in which two people were injured.

Swedish media also reported that a suicide bomber blew himself up about 200 metres from the car. The man apparently had canisters on him and shouted in Arabic before the blast.

Swedish media were also reportedly sent a threatening email before the blast, criticizing the role of Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan and urging Muslims to take action.

It is not yet known if the email and the explosions are linked.

This is terrible!

I have cousins in Maalmo. I hope they weren’t shopping in Stockholm today.

Suicide car bombings... in Sweeden. Maybe the first ever.

Hmm... I wonder how and why this happened? Don’t have a clue.

According to the Authorities this wasn't a terrorist attack.

. . . thought I'd get ahead of the story.

France24.com:

Stockholm hit by double bombing Two bombs were detonated in the shopping district of the Swedish capital Saturday, killing one man and injuring two others. The blasts, one of them a car bomb, went off some 200 metres apart.
By News Wires (text)

AP – Two explosions in central Stockholm killed one person and injured two on Saturday, causing panic among Christmas shoppers.

Police spokeswoman Petra Sjolander said a car exploded near Drottninggatan, a busy shopping street in the center of the city. Shortly afterward, a second explosion was heard higher up on the same street, and a man was found injured on the ground.

He was later pronounced dead.

Two other people were taken to the hospital with lighter injuries, but it was not immediately clear in which explosion they were hurt.

Rescue services spokesman Roger Sverndal said the car that exploded contained gas canisters.

Sjolander said it was unclear what caused the second explosion and if the two blasts were linked, but said a police bomb squad has been sent to the site.

Gabriel Gabiro, a former AP staffer, heard the explosion from inside a watch store across the street and saw smoke coming from the area where the man was lying.

“There was a man lying on the ground with blood coming out in the area of his belly, and with his personal belongings scattered around him,” he said.

Gabiro said the blast was “quite loud” and he saw people running from the site.

“It shook the store that I was in,” he said of the blast. “Then there was smoke and gun powder coming into the store.”

“I saw some people crying, perhaps from the shock,” he added.

Sweden - which has so far been spared of any large terrorist attacks - raised its terror threat alert level from low to elevated in October because of “a shift in activities” among Swedish-based groups that could be plotting attacks there.

Amish suicide bombers terrorize the planet!

Bearded Yoders, Millers, Troyers, and Hochstetllers should be easy to pick out amongst other travelers.

And those peculiar sayings like: “hast du der bomb, Jacob?” all make these guys too easy to profile.

Why is the TSA feeling my junk and giving Isaac Yoder a pass?

I guess the Swedes are just as dumb as Americans in that they welcomed these “things” into their country. We, too, will likely pay the price someday.

At first I thought it might be related to Assange but now...probably those pesky Amish again.

Not to make light of a bad situation but at least the Julbocken hasn't burned yet and it sounds like Gavle has stepped up security. Might just make it through this year.

AP:

According to the news agency, the e-mail referred to Sweden’s silence surrounding artist Lars Vilk’s drawing of Muhammad as a dog and its soldiers in Afghanistan.

“Now your children, daughters and sisters shall die like our brothers and sisters and children are dying,” the news agency quoted the e-mail as saying.

Police said they were aware of the e-mail, which had also been addressed to Sweden’s security police, but couldn’t immediately confirm a link to the explosions.

Two people were taken to the hospital with light injuries. It was not immediately clear in which explosion they were hurt.

Rescue services spokesman Roger Sverndal said the car that exploded contained gas canisters.

Gabriel Gabiro, a former AP staffer, heard the second explosion from inside a watch store across the street and saw smoke coming from the area where the man was lying.

I'm worried about a backlash. I do hope that their version of Eric Holder will be quick to allay the fears of the Muslim community, as he has been quick to do in this country. Let's not forget what's important in all this.

You’re assuming the religion of peace had anything to do with this, when this has Amish written all over it.

Hey, all you new Congressmen, take a good look at America’s future of car bombings and Muslim acts of terrorism.

You could prevent this from happening if you love your country, or you can sit on your butts, stick your heads in the sand, like previous politicians have done, and pretend that we will be free fom terrorism because we treat Muslims with the respect they deserve.

Dream on.

Oh? Was a horse and buggy seen in the area before the blast? I live in Amish country and I say they had nothing to do with it. The Mennonites, on the other hand, are a different story. You've got to watch out for them.
