Muslim Council head condemns extremism
Helena Benaouda, chair woman of the Muslim Council of Sweden (Sveriges muslimska råd), said in a statement that all forms of extremism are unacceptable, and that she, "just like everyone else, must take the threat of extremism - including Islamic extremism - seriously."
Helena Benaouda's daughter has a child together with Munir Awad, the 29-year-old Swede arrested in Copenhagen on Wednesday on suspicions of plotting an attack on the Jyllands-Posten newspaper.
Awad has been jailed overseas on two previous occasions, once in Ethiopia in 2007, and once in Pakistan in 2009. On both occasions he was arrested together with Benaouda's daughter.
