Man arrested in Scotland over Stockholm bombing
A 30-year-old foreign national was arrested by counterterrorism police in Scotland in connection with the Stockholm suicide bombing on December 11 last year. Strathclyde Police said the man was detained on terror-related offenses. "The operation centers on a previous incident in Sweden. It was intelligence-led and relates to allegations that this individual has been involved in aiding terrorist activities outside Scotland. There is no evidence to suggest that there is a direct threat to Scotland posed by this person," authorities said. The suicide bomber, 28-year-old Taimour Abdulwahab al Abdaly—an Iraqi-born Swede who studied at the University of Bedfordshire, in southern England—blew himself up and injured two people in the botched attack in central Stockholm last year.
