The British police have continued searching a house in Bedfordshire Monday as part of an investigation into the UK connections of the suicide bomber, who attempted a terror attack in the Swedish capital Stockholm Saturday.

A Swedish news agancy, TT, received an e-mail Saturday, which mentioned the Swedish troops in Afghanistan and the Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, who depicted the Prophet Mohammed as having the body of a dog. It also contained sound files of a person speaking in Swedish and Arabic, making suicide bombing threats.

He has already been identified as the terror attack's perpetrator – a 29 year-old Swedish citizen born in Iraq.

Scotland Yard said no arrests had been made and no hazardous materials had been found at his property, the exact location of which has not been released.
