Swedish security police organization Säpo is looking for a further two people in connection with the firebombing of an Iraqi polling place in Kista on 15th December last year.

Three men were seen running from the scene in the Stockholm suburb but only one of them, a 22-year old, has been charged for carrying out the attack.

Säpo has questioned a man suspected of being the brains behind the firebombing, Dagens Nyheter reports.

This person is suspected of being the "spokesman" who sent a letter to a number of newspapers. In the letter, a group claiming to be a Swedish branch of al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack.
