Prosecutor: 2010 Stockholm bomber sent confession

LONDON (AP) — Prosecutors say a suicide bomber who targeted Christmas shoppers in Sweden's capital in 2010 sent an email to his wife on the day of the attack confessing that he was a terrorist.

Lawyer Andrew Miller told Glasgow's High Court on Wednesday that Taimour Abdulwahab had sent wife Mona Thwany a message with three voice files attached.

In one file he said that it had not been "easy to live the last four years with the secret of being (a) mujahedeen or, as you call it, terrorist."

Abdulwahab, who lived in southern England, blew himself up amid panicked shoppers in downtown Stockholm on Dec. 11, 2010, injuring two people.

Miller was addressing the trial of Nasserdine Menni, an alleged accomplice of Abdulwahab. Menni denies charges of conspiracy.
