A man whose body was discovered in the street after a bomb was set off in Sweden had nine suspected pipe bombs lying around him, a court has heard.
Roger Skoglund, a technical investigator for the Swedish police, said the items were discovered following a blast in the Bryggargarten area of Stockholm on December 11, 2010.
He said five of the pipes, which "gave the impression of being bombs", were discovered close to the man's left leg, another three were lying in front of the right foot of the body while one other was above his head.
Mr Skoglund said some had electrical wires coming from them. He added it appeared as though there were remains of a burnt, grey substance, which looked like an explosive.
He was giving evidence at the High Court in Glasgow in the trial of Nasserdine Menni, who is accused of being involved in a conspiracy with Taimour Abdulwahab which resulted in a bomb going off in the Swedish capital.
Abdulwahab died in the explosion.
An international driver's document registered to Belgium and a Swedish identity card found near the body gave the name Taimour Abdulwahab.
The identity card gave his date of birth as December 12, 1981 and his address as Storgatan 2, in the city of Tranas, which is about 300km (186 miles) from Stockholm. It also listed his height as 5ft 10ins.
The jury was shown pictures of the various items, and of the man's body, covered with a blanket.
Mr Menni is accused of furthering Abdulwahab's terrorist aims by criminal and other means.
Abdulwahab's alleged "aims" included the use of explosives devices in the commission of an act of terrorism directed against members of the public in Sweden with intent to murder them.
Mr Menni denies all the charges against him.
