Sweden Suicide Bomber Identified

The suicide bomber killed in yesterday's bombing in Sweden has been identified as Taimur Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, a 29 year old married father and former student at Bedfordshire University in Luton, UK. His family lives in Sweden.

An Yemeni Islamist website, Shumukh al-Islam, published a photograph of Abdulwahab in dark glasses, saying: “It is our brother, mujahid Taymour Abdel Wahab, who carried out the martyrdom operation in Stockholm.”

With AQAP is praising the act, and since Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab also attended college in England, how long until Anwar al-Awlaki is mentioned as the one who radicalized Abdulwahab?
