Luton (England): A website affiliated with
al Qaeda says the suicide bomber in Sweden was targeting a
newspaper linked to the publication of the Prophet Muhammad
cartoons.

Taimour Abdulwahab died in a botched suicide bombing
in central Stockholm over the weekend.

A writer on the Shumokh al-Islam website wrote on Tuesday
one of the bomber`s six gas cylinders in his car exploded
prematurely. The writer says the bomber tried to escape but
one of the bombs strapped to his body also exploded too soon.

Neither the writer nor the newspaper was named.
Several Swedish papers published the cartoons.

The plot has brought the English town of Luton back
into the spotlight. Abdulwahab studied there, and over the
years it has been the site of several terrorism arrests.
