Stockholm Suicide Bomber Injures Two And Only Kills Himself

Car bomb and suicide bomb in a downtown shopping district in Stockholm and the only death is that of the suicide bomber although two others were injured.

Before the attack it is being reported that the suicide bomber sent a letter and audiotape stating "Now your children, daughters, and sisters die like our brothers and sisters die. Our actions speak for themselves. As long as you don't stop your war against Islam, and you degrade the Prophet, and your support for that stupid pig [cartoonist Lars] Vilks."

Lars Vilks is a Swedish artist well known for his series of drawings which depicted the Islamic prophet Muhammad that sparked a major controversy and threats on Vilks' life from Islamic jihadists.
