Same man sends e-mail, bombs himself: Swedish police

STOCKHOLM. December 13. KAZINFORM The man who bombed himself in central Stockholm on Saturday was the same person who sent the threatening e-mail, Swedish police said Monday. Kazinform refers to Xinhua.

The police have judged it was the same person who sent the e-mail to the Swedish Security Service (SAPO) and the TT news agency with audio files on Saturday and who later was killed by the bomb he carried in his body, the Swedish daily SvD said in a report.

The man came from Iraq, said the paper.

Now the question is if this man was working alone or together with someone else, said Malena Rembe, chief analyst at SAPO's counter-terror department.

Police said on Sunday that they were investigating the explosions as an act of terrorism.

Two explosions took place in central Stockholm on Saturday, with one destroying a car and wounding two persons and the other taking place a few minutes later and killing the man. Kazinform cites Xinhua. See for full version
