TERRORIST GROUPS IN SWEDEN

The tabloids have written about different militant Islamists and terrorist groups located in Sweden. Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat, Armed Islamic Group, and Ansar al-Islam are all mentioned. Here is an excerpt (Leading Imam Warns of Moslem Extremists) from Radio Sweden:

Sweden's leading Moslem cleric says he has received death threats after condemning the July 7th attacks in London.

Writing in the newspaper "Expressen" Tuesday, the head of the Swedish Council of Imams, Hassan Moussa, says the London bombings convinced him to stop qualifying his criticism of terrorism in his Friday sermons.

The day after his unreserved condemnation, he started receiving threats, even inside his own mosque. (SR.se, 09/07/05.)
