A seven-member FBI team has gone to Sweden to help sort out the the botched explosion over the weekend that killed a 28-year-old suicide bomber in a crowded shopping district in Stockholm, the New York Times reported.

The Times reported that the FBI experts specialize in analyzing bomb fragments, and  that Swedish officials suspect the Iraqi-born bomber Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly likely had accomplices. Authorities were anxious to follow those leads.

Authorities say the bomber used a crude bomb. Media reports suggested the the Middle East-born man was carrying a bomb he planned to detonate  at a train station or department store when it prematurely exploded.
