Report: Sweden Terror Suspect From Uzbekistan, Posted ISIS Videos on Facebook

Yesterday, a terrorist plowed over pedestrians with a high jacked truck in Stockholm, Sweden killing 4 and injuring over a dozen people. 

The terrorist is reportedly a 39 year old man from Uzbekistan who posted ISIS video to Facebook.

Fox News reports:

The suspect in Friday’s deadly truck attack in Stockholm posted videos of ISIS atrocities on Facebook and “liked” a picture showing the bloody aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, a Swedish newspaper reported.

The Aftonbladet newspaper said the suspect was a 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan who had lived in one of the Swedish capital’s southern suburbs. The newspaper quoted a friend of the arrested man who said the suspect was a father of four and worked in construction.

The Aftonbladet report quoted a police source who said authorities have “very good evidence” against the suspect. The arrested man was wearing the same clothes as a man seen in a photo distributed by police. The suspect was also covered in broken glass.

Police believe the suspect fled to a nearby subway station and attempted to blend in with commuters. Aftonbladet’s police source said the man took a northbound train toward Stockholm’s international airport, then got on a southbound train in an apparent attempt to confuse authorities.

“He had nowhere to go,” the source told Aftonbladet. “He behaved oddly.”

The suspect is expected to appear before a judge on Saturday. Prosecutors have until Tuesday to decide whether to request the suspect be held or released.

The ‘religion of peace’ strikes again. Of course Swedish officials are scratching their heads and wondering what the terrorist’s motive could have possibly been. We may never know. In the meantime, Sweden will be letting in many more Muslim migrants to prove that they are tolerant and diverse.
