Man Arrested in Connection With Stockholm Attack Uzbekistan National

  • A concrete traffic stopper called “Stockholmslejon” lays on its side outside the cordoned off area next to the department store Ahlens following a suspected terror attack on the Drottninggatan Street in central Stockholm Sweden Saturday

"We do not comment on what we have seized", said Bystrom, declining to confirm or deny media reports that a bag with some kind of explosives had been found in truck.

Swedish police have identified a 39-year-old man originally from Uzbekistan as the suspected driver.

Jonas Hysing, of Sweden's national police, added that authorities knew he was "sympathetic to extremist organisations, among them IS [the Islamic State group]". "The migration agency rejected it in June 2016 and also decided that he was to be expelled", Mr Hysing said.

Hundreds of flower bouquets covered steps leading down to the square next to where the truck plowed into the Ahlens department store, with more piled up under boarded-up windows.

Trudeau says he and his wife are praying for a speedy recovery for the injured in Stockholm.

Police are treating the attack as a possible case of terrorism and have said the suspect expressed support for the Islamic State (ISIS) online and was known to authorities.

Police said on Sunday they had brought in seven people over the apparent terrorist attack outside the department store on Friday, according to Reuters. "On the contrary, the suspicions have strengthened", national police chief Dan Eliasson said on Saturday.

In Brussels, the Belga news agency said the Belgian woman had been reported missing before she was identified by her identity papers and later by DNA testing.

A British man is among four people who were killed when a truck was driven into pedestrians in Stockholm. It said two were in intensive care, four were seriously injured but the one child was not seriously hurt.

"Sweden shall come out stronger from this, and we get through this together", she told the press and mourners gathered near the department store.

"Firstly, to those of you who today are mourning a loss or are anxious about someone who is injured, I want you to know that Sweden is by your side", said Lofven.

Fifteen people were treated in hospitals for injuries they suffered in the attack.

Several police cars parked near the scene were also covered in flowers by Swedes, who widely praised the emergency crews' speedy response to the attack.

Sources told Sky News on Saturday the suspected terrorist "burned" himself while trying - and failing - to detonate the homemade bomb in the truck he drove into a crowd of pedestrians at the Ahlens City shopping mall.
