Swedish news agency got email threat before blasts

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Swedish news agency TT said on Saturday that it and the Security Police had received an email about 10 minutes before two explosions in the capital city Stockholm which killed a man and wounded two others.

The agency said the mail had sound files in both Swedish and Arabic attached.

It said the voice on the sound file addressed Sweden and the Swedish people and talked about Sweden’s silence over the caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed by artist Lars Vilks and Sweden’s presence in Afghanistan.

“Our actions will talk for themselves. As long as you do not end your war against Islam and humiliation of the prophet and your stupid support for the pig Vilks,” TT quoted the man on the sound file as saying.
