Sweden identifies Stockholm truck attack victims, second suspect arrested

Sweden identifies Stockholm truck attack victims, second suspect arrested

Under sunny spring skies, crowds thronged the Sergels Torg plaza, a stone's throw from where a stolen truck mowed down strolling shoppers before slamming into the facade of the bustling Ahlens department store on Friday afternoon.

The motive for the attack is not known.

Expressen did not specify whether the man had claimed to have committed the attack on behalf of Isis.

Jonas Hysing, of Sweden's national police, said "we know he has been sympathetic to extremist organisations".

The suspect had also been due to be expelled from Sweden after his residency application was rejected past year.

The Stockholm suspect, aged 39 and from the Central Asian republic of Uzbekistan, applied for permanent residence in Sweden in 2014.

Police had been looking for him since the Nordic country's Migration Agency in December gave him four weeks to leave the country.

The associate also said Jakubowski had made non-specific threats toward schools and public officials, according to the sheriff. A $10,000 reward is being offered from the Federal Bureau of Investigation for help in locating this suspect.

A woman handed out roses to two police officers guarding the square: "thank you", she said and smiled.

But police said they were more convinced than ever that the Uzbek man was the driver of the commandeered truck.

Two of the dead were Swedes, one was a British citizen and the other from Belgium, Hysing said. Their identities were not released by Swedish officials.

"He is suspected on reasonable grounds, which is the lower degree of suspicion". Fifteen people were injured, 10 of whom were still hospitalized as of Sunday.

"I know it's a hard time, there is a lot going on within Swedish society and internationally".

Four people were killed and 15 were injured when the lorry crashed into the front of a department store. Four of them are in "serious condition", health authorities told AFP.

Swedish Prosecution Authority spokeswoman Karin Rosander said a second person has been arrested in connection with the attack and is suspected of terrorist offences, including murder.

Last week, 46 Senate Democrats had urged Trump not to sign the Bill, arguing most Americans "believe that their private information should be just that".

Answering reporters' questions on Vietnam's response to the attack, Hang said on April 8 that "We extend our deep sympathies to the Swedish Government and people, especially families of the victims".

"Too many of them have been coming in too fast", the 29-year-old railway worker said.

Police have interviewed more than 500 people over the incident, Sweden's TT news agency has reported.

"It is likely that it is the driver of the van that has been arrested", police spokesman Mats Eriksson told CNN. The auto bomb never went off, and Abdulwahab died when one of his devices exploded among panicked Christmas shoppers.

"If this is a terrorist attack, terrorists. want us to not live our lives normally", he said.

Friday's attack in Stockholm deeply shocked the usually tranquil Scandinavian nation, which prides itself on its openness and tolerance. No group has claimed responsibility for the bloodshed, which mirrored recent truck attacks in London, Berlin and Nice, France. The building includes several stores at street-level.
