More Details on the Jihadist Arrested in Glasgow

The Sunday Mail yesterday had some more details of the man arrested in Glasgow last week in connection with the suicide bombing in Stockholm last year.

POLICE have put a 24-hour guard outside the home of the Stockholm bombing suspect to stop it being targeted by vigilantes.

Officers have been on duty at his flat since the 30-year-old was arrested on Tuesday morning.

The property was sealed off when the nursing student was taken into custody to be questioned.

Strathclyde Police have maintained a presence at the 19th floor of the tower block in Glasgow's Whiteinch to prevent vandalism.

The suspect, AK al-Khalede, was arrested in connection with the botched suicide bombing last year.

He is being held in the Scottish Terrorist Detention Centre in Govan.
Iraqi-born Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly - who studied at the University of On duty: Cops at flat Bedfordshire - blew himself up and injured two people in Stockholm's shopping district on December 11.

Terror cops swooped on al-Khalede after a month-long investigation involving British and Swedish security services.

He is thought to have travelled to Luton several times to visit al-Abdaly, 28.
Residents at the flats say al-Khalede introduced himself as "Mo" when he moved to the area in December.

One man, who didn't want to be named, said: "People around here are furious. A few guys have talked about getting hold of Mo if he returns."

A Strathclyde Police spokeswoman said: "Until officers are satisfied no further evidence can be found in a property, it will be guarded."

A sheriff has granted police an extension to the time al-Khalede can be held.
