STOCKHOLM — The suicide bomber who killed himself in Stockholm carried three sets of bombs and had sent threats referring to "jihad" in an e-mail shortly before his death, a prosecutor said Monday.

Prosecutor Tomas Lindstrand identified the suicide bomber behind Saturday's blasts as 28-year-old Taimour Abdulwahab, a Swedish citizen who has lived in Britain for the past ten years.

Parts of the explosives probably detonated by mistake before Abdulwahab reached his final destination, he said.

"He had three sets of bombs and I don't think his intention was to blow himself up only," Lindstrand told The Associated Press. "It was a failure, luckily."
