Iraq: Swedish citizen commits suicide attack (UPDATED)

Iraq: Swedish citizen commits suicide attack

Update: More information at the Jih@d blog, which first broke the story. Also, this might be the first Swedish suicide bomber, but Swedish Jihadists have already been killed in action in Iraq and Somalia.


A Swedish citizen committed a suicide attack in Iraq, according to a forum used by al-Qaeda. The Swedish Foreign Office is investigating the report. It's unclear when and where the attack took place. If the report is true, this will apparently be the first Swedish suicide-bomber.

The man, of Tunisian background, lived in Sweden and was married to a Swedish woman.
