About 200 Islamic extremists in Sweden: intel

Swedish intelligence agency Saepo said Wednesday there were around 200 violence-promoting Islamic extremists in Sweden, days after the country’s first ever suicide bombing missed wreaking havoc among Christmas shoppers.

Some “80 percent of the 200 can be linked to each other,” Malena Rembe, the chief analyst at Saepo’s Counter-Terrorism Unit told reporters, adding they were not part of one big network.

“The radicalisation happens in Sweden,” but “the concrete threat is mainly directed at people in other countries,” Rembe said.
