Stockholm suicide blast a terror attack: police
A spokesperson for Swedish security service Säpo labeled as a terror crime the suicide attack that shook central Stockholm on Saturday evening, leaving one person dead and wounding two others.
At a Sunday morning press conference, Säpo said it had taken over the investigation into the nearly simultaneous bombings from the Stockholm police. The investigation will be overseen by chief prosecutor Tomas Linstrand.
“We are opening an investigation into a terrorist crime under Swedish laws,” Anders Thornberg, head of Säpo’s security department, told a press conference, a day after the explosions targeted shoppers in the Swedish capital.
Thornberg called the incident “very serious”, although he reiterated that Säpo had no plans to raise the threat level in Sweden as a result of the attack.
