AP - Police say they have arrested a 30-year-old man in Scotland in connection with a suicide bombing in Sweden.

Strathclyde Police said the suspect was detained Tuesday morning in Glasgow as part of an “intelligence-led” operation into the attack in Stockholm in December.

Taimour Abdulwahab, an Iraqi-born Swede who had spent time in Britain, blew himself up and injured two others in a busy shopping street.

Police said the suspect posed no direct threat to Scotland.
