An apparent suicide bomber is dead after a failed attempt at mass casualties on a busy Swedish street. The Stockholm bomb killed the bomber, no one else, and caused panic as the street was filled with holiday shoppers. According to authorities, the motive was Sweden’s involvement in Afghanistan and the artist Lars Vilk’s drawings of the prophet Muhammad.

Stockholm

Swedish authorities received emails warning of impending attacks just ten minutes before the Stockholm bomb, placed in a car, went off.

Two individuals were treated for minor injuries and the blasts caused little damage on Drottninggatan. The bomber wrote to authorities in the emails, “Now your children, daughters, and sisters shall die like our brothers and sisters and children are dying.”

The emails warning of the Stockholm bombing were accompanied by recordings. One recording reportedly says, “Our actions will talk for themselves. As long as you do not end your war against Islam and humiliation of the prophet and your stupid support for the pig Vilks.” More maniacal ravings from the religion of peace.
