Wednesday, 14 September 2011
A 28-year-old woman has been arrested in Britain on suspicion of involvement in suicide attack in central Stockholm last year, reports the BBC.

The British news channel reports that the 28-year-old woman was arrested in Luton as part of an investigation into a suicide bombing in Sweden in December last year. She was held on Tuesday on suspicion of the preparation of terrorist acts.


Here in Sweden, it is unclear how the woman was involved in the suicide bombing, but police say she is suspected of preparing for terrorist attacks. London police are reticent about the details of his arrest. According to the Associated Press the arrested woman is the wife of Taimour Abdulwahab, who carried out the suicide attack in Stockholm

Taimour Al-Abdaly, 28, an Iraqi-born Swede who had been based in Luton, blew himself up in Stockholm on 11 December last year.
Two people were injured after two explosions in the Swedish capital's shopping district. Abdaly apparently killed himself as he tried to set off a car bomb in the busy street.

It later emerged that Abdaly had moved to the UK in 2001 to study and at the time of the bombing had been living in Luton with his wife and three children.
