According to the newspaper Aftonbladet, a 25-year-old man with neo-Nazi affiliations in Sweden is suspected of having stolen fertilizer from a farmer to construct a bomb.
The 25-year-old was arrested on the night of November 4 when Sweden’s national task force searched the man’s home.
An intense investigation has since been underway. According to Aftonbladet, the man has links to the Nordic Resistance Movement (NMR), a neo-Nazi organization that is active in all the Nordic countries.
The newspaper also writes that the police have suspected the man of having planned a terrorist attack from the beginning.
No comments from Säpo
However, the Swedish Security Police (Säpo) did not want to comment on Aftonbladet’s information that the man has been preparing a bomb attack in a building on a remote farm in Falköping since the end of August 2020 and that he has stolen bags of fertilizer from a farmer.
The only thing the prosecution confirmed is that the man is suspected of having planned an attack with one or more explosive devices.
“The security police and the police must both prevent and deter crime, and we felt that we were forced to do something, and we did,” State Attorney Hans-Jörgen Hanström told the newspaper.
