Stockholm terror trial: Bomb manual found at man's home, court in Glasgow hears

From the Scottish Daily Record

INSTRUCTIONS on "how to build a bomb in your mother's kitchen" were found on the computer of a man who blew himself up in a Stockholm street, a court heard today. They were contained in a publication called Inspire, described as an Al Qaeda magazine.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that broken Christmas tree lights like those mentioned in the bomb-making instructions were also found in Taimour Abdulwahab's house in Luton. Abdulwahab died in the explosion on December 11 2010 in the Bryggargatan area of the Swedish capital.

Nasserdine Menni, whose age is unknown, is on trial charged with conspiring with Abdulwahab and others to further terrorist aims, which included the use of explosive devices in the commission of an act of terrorism directed against members of the Swedish public, with intent to murder them.

Under cross-examination today, Abdulwahab's wife Mona Thwany, 29, was asked whether she had heard of Inspire magazine. She said she had read that it was an Al Qaeda magazine.

Ms Thwany was also asked about Christmas tree lights which the police found in her house, which had bits of flex cut off them. She told the court that she did not cut the flex and was unaware whether her husband or anyone else had.

Mr Taylor said: "The instructions on how to build a bomb in Inspire magazine contained details. You needed an ignitor, which could be a Christmas tree light, there were instructions on how to break the light leaving the filament intact. In your house you've got instructions to send pollen presses which turn up in Stockholm, you've got Christmas tree lights cut up to form the very bits that form the ignitors in Stockholm and you've got your bank account being used to pay for these. I suggest you knew perfectly well that your husband's objective was to kill himself in Sweden."

She replied: "No."

Menni is also charged with transferring money to or for the use of Abdulwahab, in the knowledge it would be used for the purposes of terrorism. It is alleged he conspired with Abdulwahab and others from addresses in Glasgow, Luton, Bedford, Syria, Iraq and Sweden between January 1 2003 and March 8 2011. He denies all of the charges against him.
