Truck jihad kills five in Sweden
At least five people are dead and many more injured after a terror attack that saw a hijacked lorry plough into pedestrians outside a Stockholm department store.They have not given the identity or the religious affiliation of the driver but these attacks are generally done by Islamic terrorists. Sweden has tried to downplay its recent problems with Muslim refugees, but this one will be hard to ignore.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said it appeared the crash was "a terror attack" and the country's intelligence service said there was "a large number of injured".
Mr Lofven said a suspect had been arrested in connection with the attack, which is reported to have involved gunshots, in the Swedish capital on Friday afternoon.
Blood stains were visible on the streets along with bodies covered in blankets in the aftermath of the incident in Drottninggatan, a street in a busy shopping district.
Paramedics could also be seen tending to the injured near the lorry, which was embedded in the corner of the Ahlens department store with its cab burning.
