Sweden Reveals Shortage of Rocket Scientists
Sky News treats us to New Evidence In 'Hijacking' Case:
The gunman suspected of attempting to hijack a London-bound plane planned a "very serious crime unprecedented in Sweden", Swedish police have said.A spokesman told Sky News Kerim Chatty plotted another atrocity in addition to the alleged hijacking. "He is suspected of attempted hijacking and is now also suspected of airplane sabotage or of airport sabotage," said police spokesman Ulf Palm.

Asked if that meant Chatty was planning to crash the plane - possibly into a US embassy as reported - Mr Palm said he could not comment.

"This is a very, very serious crime and very unusual in Sweden," he said.
How do you say "duh" with a Swedish accent?
