Ahmed Ahmed is an imam suspected of being a recruiter for the Islamic State terrorist group, who has been deported by Sweden after a year in detention.
He was detained last year on suspicion of being a key figure in the radicalisation and recruitment of Islamic State terrorists across Sweden, where he had worked in a number of mosques.
It is alleged 14 people connected to him travelled to fight for the Islamic State terrorist group.
In a 2015 raid on his home, images of Islamic State terrorists and Osama bin Laden were allegedly found on his phone along with a picture of the Jordanian pilot who was burnt alive by the Islamic State terrorists.
A preliminary investigation against him was dropped and the imam denied the allegations. He is one of several imams the Swedish government has detained prior to deportation.
Despite criminal charges not proceeding, investigators alleged that he had contact with most of the people in Orebro who had joined the Islamic State.
Also, he has also worked in other cities such as Gothenburg, Stockholm and Eskilstuna.
