Sweden arrests man for ‘terrorist crime’ after truck attack


Stockholm: Swedish police said on Saturday that a man arrested on “suspicion of terrorist crime” could be the driver of the truck that ploughed into a crowd of people in a busy Stockholm store department.

“We suspect that the man who was arrested is the perpetrator,” Stockholm police spokesman Lars Bystrom said.

Sweden on Saturday arrested the man for a terrorist crime hours after a truck ploughed into a crowd outside a busy department store in central Stockholm, killing four and injuring 15.

The man was arrested on suspicion of a terrorist crime through murder, Karin Rosander, a communications director at the Swedish Prosecution Authority said.
