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.

WASHINGTON — Julian Assange, the Australian-born founder of WikiLeaks, is in more hot water.

Interpol, an international law enforcement agency, has placed Assange on a “red notice” wanted list as a result of a Swedish arrest warrant on allegations of rape and other sexual charges relating to encounters he had with two women in August, the New York Times reported. Assange, 39,  has claimed it was all consensual.

The U.S. isn’t likely to shed a tear over the latest developments. Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. said this week that a criminal probe into the leaked Wikipedia documents is under way.

Several newspaper published confidential documents leaked by Wikipedia. In all, 250,000 diplomatic cables were leaked this week, embarrassing the U.S. and other nations.

Assange’s whereabouts is unknown.
