Thumbs down Sweden is attacked, says PM Lofven; police say there could be several dead

Sweden is attacked, says PM Lofven; police say there could be several dead



Stockholm police made an arrest Friday in connection with an attack in which a truck was driven into pedestrians on the busiest street in the center of city, leaving at least two people dead, police spokesman Lars Bystrom has told CNN. No other details were available.

At least two people were killed when a stolen truck was driven into pedestrians on the busiest street in the center of Stockholm, in what appeared to be the latest use of a vehicle as a weapon of terror in Europe.
The Swedish Security Service said a large number of people were injured in the attack, which happened just before 3 p.m. local time on Friday. People were seen fleeing the area in panic.

The beer truck was hijacked as it made a delivery nearby, according to the company that owned it. Eyewitnesses reported it being driven at speed along Drottninggatan (Queen Street) before it crashed into the front of a department store.

Security services said the driver of the truck was not in custody and a manhunt was underway. Police urged people to stay at home and avoid the city center.
Parliament and the Stockholm subway were placed in lockdown. All train services in and out of Stockholm Central Station were halted and people were evacuated, the Swedish state railway company said.

"Sweden has been attacked," Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told reporters "Everything indicates this is a terror attack."


Lofven said the government was doing everything possible to help the security services. "We are thinking about the victims -- their families and friends -- and those who were injured," he said."

The Prime Minister was returning to the capital from the west of the country, his spokesman Erik Nises told CNN.

King Carl XVI Gustaf also announced he had cut short his state visit to Brazil to return home immediately in the aftermath of the attack.
