Arrest part of ongoing terror probe
A man arrested in connection with the Stockholm suicide bombing was detained after a month-long investigation, police have said.
The 30-year-old foreign national was arrested in the Whiteinch area of Glasgow at about 6am on Tuesday over the bombing in Sweden in December last year.
It is alleged the man, who was taken to a high-security police station in Govan in the city, was involved in aiding terrorists in Sweden.
The suicide bomber, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, 28, who studied at the University of Bedfordshire, blew himself up and injured two people in an attack in Stockholm's shopping district.
Chief Superintendent Ruaraidh Nicolson, from Strathclyde Police, said the arrest is part of an ongoing investigation which is "intelligence led".
He said: "It's very early in the investigation. It's been ongoing for just over the last month or so.
"We want to reassure the public we've no evidence whatsoever that there is a threat to Scotland."
Referring to the investigation, he said there is "absolutely no evidence" that there is a terrorist cell working in Scotland.
He said the nationality of the man being held is "part of the ongoing investigation", and officers are searching three properties in Glasgow.
The Metropolitan Police and Bedfordshire Police are also involved in the investigation.
