A suspected car bomb exploded in the Swedish capital of Stockholm Thursday night.Several police patrols scrambled to the scene in Hägerstensåsen, a suburb in the south of the city, just after 10 pm on Thursday evening.The explosion was said to have shaken nearby buildings, and there were several people in the area. No one was injured.One witness told Swedish paper Expressen that such extreme events have become so commonplace in the once peaceful nation they were not shocked.“We heard something that sounded like an explosion. It happens so much these days, so you do not really care… apart from the sound, it passed unnoticed,” they said.A police source told P4 Stockholm they believe the explosives were placed in the wheel arch of the vehicle.“Yes, it was some kind of explosion next to a car. Our technicians were on site during the night and the road was sealed off but we do not want to speculate on what happened,” police spokesman Kjell Lindgren told Stockholm Direkt.On Wednesday, two men were shot and later died in the Stockholm suburb of Kista in a suspected double murder.
Kabul (AFP) – Gunmen disguised as doctors stormed Afghanistan’s largest military hospital Wednesday, killing at least 38 people in a six-hour attack claimed by the Islamic State group as it makes inroads into the war-battered country.
More than 70 others were wounded in the assault on the Sardar Daud Khan hospital, with explosions and gunfire rattling Kabul’s diplomatic district as dense clouds of smoke rose in the sky.
Medical staff hunkered down in the hospital wards posted desperate messages for help on social media, with television footage showing some of them trapped on the ledge of a top-floor window.
“Attackers are inside the hospital. Pray for us,” a hospital staff member wrote on Facebook.
Hospital administrators told AFP three gunmen wearing white laboratory coats began spraying bullets after a suicide bomber on foot blew himself up at the backdoor entrance, sparking chaos inside the 400-bed facility.
“I saw one of the attackers, armed with an AK-47 and dressed as a doctor, shooting at patients and guards on the third floor,” hospital nurse Abdul Qadeer told AFP.
“They shot my friend but I managed to flee… I had to jump over the barbed wire to escape.”
At least two other loud explosions — including what the defence ministry called a car bomb in the hospital’s parking lot — were heard as Afghan special forces launched a clearance operation that lasted around six hours.
– ‘Criminal act’ –
The attackers were gunned down after special forces landed on the roof of the hospital in a military helicopter.
“The attack in the capital’s central Wazir Akbar Khan neighbourhood has killed 38 people and wounded more than 70,” the Italian-run Emergency hospital said in a statement, adding that a seven-year-old boy was among those seriously injured.
The raid highlights how Afghanistan’s warring parties, including government forces, have repeatedly targeted medical facilities, decimating the country’s fragile health system and preventing conflict-displaced civilians from accessing life-saving care.
“This egregious and morally reprehensible attack targeted people at their most vulnerable, while they were receiving treatment in the hospital, and also targeted the medical staff caring for them,” said the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan.
“This cowardly attack reflects a fundamental rejection of the most basic principles of humanity. Without question, it amounts to an atrocity, and the perpetrators must be held accountable.”
Islamic State jihadists claimed the attack via a verified Telegram account.
This is Islamic law: Christians and other “People of the Book” may enjoy the “protection” of the Islamic state if they submit, pay the jizya, and accept other humiliating and discriminatory regulations designed to ensure that they “feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29). But if they violate this contract of “protection,” they are kuffar harbi, infidels at war with Islam, and their lives are forfeit.
And did Allah give orders to kill every infidel? Variations on the statement “kill them wherever you find them” appear at Qur’an 2:191, 4:89 and 9:5.
Muslims and their leftist sympathizers have taken to social media and major news outlets to demand that a Baptist church remove a sign which they say is “bigoted” against Islam. Expecting the peaceful pastor to cave, they were shocked and enraged when he not only refused to remove it, but offered the perfect response.
Two New Jersey parents were outraged after their children were forced to take part in a middle school social studies lesson on Islam, while the other world religions were ignored.

Truth Bombs: The ignorance of Christian liberalism. They believe that many thing can be true at the same time in the same context. So while real Christians are being killed and persecuted around the world, US “Christian” colleges are submitting to Islam.
A Christian university in Texas has created a prayer room for its Muslim students.
The Methodist-affiliated McMurry University dedicated the space in one of the school’s residential dorms for its Muslim students’ daily prayers.
Before its creation, Muslim students met for prayer in a nearby hotel, a student who helped establish the new prayer room told The College Fix in an interview.
That student, Joe Yousef, is president of McMurry’s Saudi Student Club. Of the roughly 1,000 students attending McMurry, about 60 are Muslim and many come from Saudi Arabia, Yousef said.
Muslim rebels brutally stabbed to death a Christian pastor in the Central African Republic (CAR), then burnt his church to the ground.
Muslims crucified and tortured a man in front of his wife and children, who refused to convert to Islam. They told him if he loved Jesus that much, he would die like Jesus.
