Terrorists Strike Sweden

Two cars explode; one killed, two injured

Two cars bombs exploded in the Swedish capital of Stockholm last night, apparently killing a terrorist and injuring two civilians.  Just ten minutes before the first blast, the Swedish news agency TT received a rambling email, exclaiming:

"[T]he time has come to take action...Now your children, daughters and sisters shall die like our brothers and sisters and children are dying."
Firefighters try to put out car fire
The email also referred to drawing of the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

Of one of the terrorist, witnesses said:
"He also had a rucksack full of nails and suspected explosive material, the newspaper said. It also quoted eyewitnesses saying the man was shouting in what was apparently Arabic."
Fox News also reports:
"Sweden — which has so far been spared 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.
The security police said then that the terrorism threat in Sweden remained low compared to that in other European countries, and no attack was imminent."
