Terror Attack – Injuries And Deaths Reported In Stockholm, Sweden
A truck has crashed into a department store Ahlens at Drottninggatan in the centre of Stockholm
Police say they are investigating a ‘deliberate’ attack after a truck drove into pedestrians in Stockholm, killing two people.
Swedish broadcaster SVT says shots have been fired in the area, although security services are yet to confirm.
There are also reports of a separate shooting incident in a second location about 20 minutes from the pedestrian shopping street where the crash took place.
According to the Swedish paper Aftonbladet, one eye witness in the shopping mall said she saw “hundreds of people” running for their lives.
Another witness described the panic, saying: “I went to the main street when a big truck came out of nowhere. I could not see if anyone was driving it but it got out of control. I saw at least two being run over. I ran as fast as I could from there.”
Others reported hearing screams and seeing “a huge truck” crashing into the wall of a shop in the Ahlens Mall.
Armed police have now cordoned off an area, and police cars, helicopters and ambulances are at the scene.
