The widow of the Stockholm suicide bomber said Tuesday that she had posted an audio recording on website YouTube of her husband after he blew himself up in an attempt to target Christmas shoppers.

"I felt it was painful to tell the story over and over again. Naively I thought people were interested in knowing the truth -- why he did it -- so I put that up on his YouTube channel," suicide bomber Taimour Abdulwahab's widow, Mona Thwany, told Sweden's TV4 television in an interview.

"I do condemn his actions and I do condemn any terrorism. If I knew what he was going to do I would have stopped him," said Thwany, who lives with their three children in Britain.

Swedish media had earlier suggested the posting of the audio recording indicated that Abdulwahab had accomplices in organising the attack.

Abdulwahab, a 29-year-old sports therapist whose family fled from Iraq to Sweden in 1991, blew up himself and his car in a busy Stockholm street on December 11. Two passers-by were injured.
