'One dead' after Stockholm blasts
BBC ^ | 12-11-10 | staff

Posted on 12/11/2010 11:24:46 AM PST by atomic conspiracy

One person has been killed and at least one other hurt as two explosions rocked the centre of the Swedish capital, Stockholm, reports say. A car blew up near the busy shopping street of Drottninggatan, and another explosion hit nearby shortly afterwards, AP quoted police as saying. A man's body was discovered after the second blast, the agency reported. Swedish Aftonbladet newspaper showed images of a burning white car. The cause of the blasts is not yet known. Rescue services spokesman Roger Sverndal said the car which exploded had contained gas canisters, AP reported. A former AP worker, Gabriel Gabiro, was close to the second blast. "I saw some people crying, perhaps from the shock," he told the agency. "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."

Invite in mo-slimes and you get the predictable result.

Which other country is bringing in lots of mo-slimes?

Not so fast. Biker gangs fighting for control of drugs have done this before in Stockholm and Copenhagen (Using grenade launchers). I’d wait for more info before placing blame, but that’s just me.

Committing suicide by immigration. I suppose they are too busy enjoying their sensual pleasures to care about any children they don’t abort. Wearing blinders to the result of a foreign ideology that is incompatible with Western Civilization is so nihilistic. Proof AGAIN continues to splatter all over the world.

Wake up and resurrect Christian ideology as your foundation. THERE HAS TO BE A IDEOLOGICAL BASE and I don’t want it to be muslim or marxism. Christianity is the only ideology besides Judaism (which is a little too exclusive, IMHO, although I would be Jewish, if not Christian) which works for societies and freedom and equality. It is proven that it works, although not perfect....nothing on earth is.

The MSM are in full lock-down/denial mode. CNN:

A car explosion killed one person and injured two others Saturday in central Stockholm, Swedish police said.

Multiple blasts went off on the car in a major shopping district in the city, full of holiday shoppers, according to police spokeswoman Petra Sjolander.

"It is likely that this was some kind of gas tubes that have caused the car to explode multiple times," she said.

The victim was found a few hundred meters from the scene, she said, adding that the connection between the man and the explosion is not immediately known.

CNN apparently doesn't think there were completely separate explosions, even though the dead man was hundreds of meters away from the car.

Odd. It mentioned that the man was bleeding from his midsection and that his clothing was scattered all around him. I wonder if it was a suicide vest that failed to detonate properly.

However, I suppose it could be anything from Eastern European mafia - to Muslim terrorists.

Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.

We don’t know what caused it yet but we’re sure it’s not terrorism.

It’s just a faulty gas can. That means we now have to enact newer more draconian gas can laws than ever before to protect people from themselves.

Story updated, there were definitely two different and widely separated incidents:

"One explosion happened at the intersection of Drottninggatan and Olof Palmes Gata. This was the car that exploded multiple times," said police spokeswoman Petra Sjolander.

A second explosion occurred about five minutes later, at the intersection of Drottninggatan and Bryggargatan streets, Sjolander said. A man was found dead at the scene.

The use of a car bomb - which this was - diverges from the biker gang methodology you mention. And, given the propensity of mo-slimes to use car bombs, I'll go with my original assessment until other evidence presents itself.

UPDATE: As mentioned earlier - definitely two explosions. Took place in the central shopping district of Stockholm (see map below).

A woman is interviewed in the SvD: She was witness to the second explosion, and when she contacted her mother, she had witnessed a car catching fire (the fisrt fire/explosion).

At the site of the second explosion the body of a dead man was found. Next to him a bag was found. According to uncomfirmed reports - but reported by all Swedish news media - the bag was full of nails!

Again, still unconfirmed reports, but it appears the police has totally ruled out that the dead man was injured in the first explosion, but are working according to the theory that he somehow managed to blow himself up. (I guess “that photo” will appear on this thread soon.)

Also, the police is said to have used a bomb-robot to X-ray the dead man’s bag (ruck sack according to some sources), and have now removed the object for further analysis.

The dead man has not yet been identified, or at least his identity has not been released. If the news items related above turns out to be true, no big win for guessing the man’s religious affiliation, though.

From aftonbladet:

Confirmed that this is a suicide bombing. 6 bombs and nail backpack. Suspect shouted in arabic before detonation.

All the other major newspapers have followed on with the same story: Attempted suicide terror attack. (Luckily it appears that only the suicide was succesful!)

So far no comments from our politicians wo otherwise are always so keen to appear in front of a camera. This is going to be v-e-r-y interesting.
