Probation for the tram bomber

Two months ago (October 29th) the street where I live was blocked off by the police because someone threatened to blow himself up and a tram in Göteborg. He had attached a homemade bomb on his body. When he stepped out of the tram at Olivedalsgatan he was arrested by the police. Police technicians found that the parts the man carried really were explosives. However, the home made capsule being used to detonate the explosives was not sufficient. Today this 61-year-old man was sentenced to probation and open psychiatric care. I hope it is safe to take tram #6 again.
