Stockholm Sees ‘Terrible Act of Terror’

Updated on

Swedish police extended their hunt for the driver of a hijacked beer truck that plowed through Stockholm’s main pedestrian shopping street on Friday then slammed into a store, killing at least four people in what the prime minister described as a terror attack.

Police said they detained a man who’d been near the scene of the attack and who “could have a connection” to it. They said he matched a picture distributed earlier of a man in a hooded sweatshirt who was being sought. But “this does not mean that we lower the intensity of our work,” Jan Evensson, a Stockholm police official, told reporters in the capital. Police had said earlier that they weren’t sure if one person or several people were involved.
