    Blasts rock Swedish capital

    CBC News - World - Blasts rock Swedish capital

    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.
    I thought this was worth posting, as this is the first time Sweden has been attacked since the war on terror began. We don't know yet if the person who suicide bombed was in relation to Al Qaeda, militant Islam, or was just person disgruntled by the war. More details are unfolding.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I hope no one was harmed, and may the bomber rest in hell.

    I don't see why they would want to attack Sweden though

    I think it's funny that you think that the anticipation of the inevitable Obama bash is a defense of Obama.

    I've made it clear, many many times, that I'm not a fan of Obama.

    I guess I should stop using big words and stick to monosyllabic grunts.

    Maybe he was just pissed that Ikea furniture falls apart after a couple of weeks.

    Couple weeks? I get infuriated putting them together. Often enough to want to bomb someth-

    Dual bombing, first a car filled with gas canisters, then a suicide bomber.
    Apparently because of Swedish involvement in Afghanistan.
