Sweden suicide bomber's British connections under investigation
Julian Borger, Richard Norton-Taylor
"Britain's security services were last night investigating the UK connections of the suicide bomber who struck Stockholm on Saturday night.
"Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, an Iraqi-born Swede, who set off a car bomb in the Swedish capital before killing himself with a second bomb strapped to his body, had a BSc in sports therapy from the University of Bedfordshire in 2004, and had spent some time in Luton in recent years. Well-placed Whitehall officials confirmed the bomber's identity and his link to a British university.
"Metropolitan police officers last night searched a property in Bedfordshire under the Terrorism Act 2000, the force said. It was reported last night that his family still lived in Luton and that neighbours last saw him two and a half weeks ago."
