A truck drove into a store in central Stockholm on April 7, killing at least three people in what the country's prime minister said was probably a terror attack, media, including the BBC, reported.
The incident in Drottninggatan, a major pedestrian street, occurred just before 3 p.m. local time and appears to be the latest in a string of incidents in which attackers have targeted pedestrians in European cities using vehicles. The most bloody of these occurred in July 2016, when a truck driven by a Tunisian citizen plowed through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city of Nice, killing 86.
One person has been arrested following the Stockholm attack, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said, Sky News reported. Police also ordered the evacuation of the city's central train station.
Swedish politics have been riven by debate over immigration, particularly from Islamic countries, in recent years, and the far-right Sweden Democrats have led many recent opinion polls.
