UK: Swedish bomber radicalized in Luton university

Via Daily Mail:

An Islamic fundamentalist was radicalised in Britain before carrying out a suicide bombing on a busy street in Sweden.

Iraqi-born Taimour Abdulwahab Al-Abdaly, 28, blew up his car, then himself, in the capital Stockholm.

He had spent much of the last decade in Luton – long known as a hotbed of terrorism – where he studied for a degree and continued living there with his wife and children.

Police were searching a property in the town today as part of the probe into the suicide attack.


At a taxi office opposite the Luton flat where Abdulwahab is understood to have lived with his wife, employee Imran Khan, 31, said: ‘We used to see him all the time. He lived across the road with his wife, a chubby lady who wore a full veil that covered everything apart from her eyes.

‘He was really quiet and she wouldn’t say anything. I haven’t seen him here for a while but she’s still around with their two little kids.’

The woman believed to be Abdulwahab’s wife two years ago signed an online petition calling for the wearing of the veil to remain legal worldwide.
