The Stockholm bombing

Well, thank goodness incompetent terrorists aren’t the exclusive domain of the United States.  Over the weekend, some dude decided that 500 Swedish troops in Afghanistan was an outrage that must be stopped at any cost.  So, he put some canisters of ‘liquefied petroleum gas’ in his car, strapped some more (or some other material that goes boom) on himself and headed for downtown Stockholm.

Both devices went off but the bomber was the only victim.  Apparently, he botched the job so that it initially might not have even been clear that it was intentional.   According to one witness:

“It looked like the man was carrying something that exploded on his stomach. He didn’t have any injuries to his face or his body and the stores nearby weren’t damaged. All the windows were whole,” the witness told DN.
