“Idrisson was found guilty of acquiring the chemicals, reading a bomb manual on a messaging platform and “planning a bomb attack in the name of Islamic State,’’ judge Patrik Alm told newsmen.

The trio was also charged with acquiring two bayonets and radio headsets.

Evidence included chat conversations and information secured from computers and mobile phones seized in different raids.

The first raids were conducted in April.

The suspected crimes took place in the greater Stockholm area as well as in Stromsund, northern Sweden.

The national terrorist alert level was not affected by the events.
