Stockholm bomber ‘radicalised’ by Romanian wife

The Stockholm bomber, Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, may have been radicalised by his wife, according to the woman’s grandmother, quoted by ‘The Telegraph.’ Romanian born Mona Thwany became a fanatical Muslim around the time of the September 11 attacks and in turn radicalised her previously westernised husband, it is alleged. Her grandmother Maria Nedelcovici, who lives in Romania, said that Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly could have been persuaded to abandon his deadly bomb plot if his wife had intervened. She told the Daily Mail: “Mona turned her husband into an extremist. She is the only one to blame. Mona had the power to stop him but she refused. She should have known better.” Detectives are trying to establish whether Abdulwahab had helpers in Britain after finding a clue on his suicide tape pointing to an accomplice. The one-minute suicide tape, which was sent to Sweden’s security police and a news agency by email, detailed Abdulwahab’s intention to carry out mass murder, partly in revenge for Sweden’s military role in Afghanistan.
