Terror suspects arrested in Sweden
Swedish security service Säpo has arrested three men in Stockholm suspected of preparing terrorist acts and financing terrorism.
- Two terror suspects to remain in custody (29 Feb 08)
- Detention orders requested for two terror suspects (29 Feb 08)
- Swede held for 'al-Qaeda ties' (14 Feb 08)
All three men are Swedish citizens of Somali origin.
Prosecutor Ronnie Jacobsson confirmed that one of the men, a 42-year-old, was the same man who had a map of artist Lars Vilks' house confiscated by police late last year.
But Säpo stressed that the map had nothing to do with Thursday's arrests. Artist Lars Vilks outraged sections of the Muslim world last year with a series of caricatures of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
