Police ‘98% sure’ of suicide bomber’s identity

Police in Sweden say they are “98% sure” that a man who blew himself up in Stockholm on Saturday is Middle East-born Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly.

Chief prosecutor Tomas Lindstrand said Abdaly had moved to Sweden in 1992. More recently he was living in the UK.

But he said the body had not yet been formally identified by DNA or a close family member.

Abdaly, 28, is believed to have died as he tried to set off a car bomb in a busy street. Two people were injured.

Mr Lindstrand told a news conference in Stockholm that after interviewing witnesses, investigators now had “a slightly better picture of what happened”.

When asked whether Abdaly had been correctly identified as the bomber in the media, he replied: “Yes”.
