The object the man picked up from the ground may have been a hand grenade, the Aftonbladet newspaper reported, though this is unconfirmed.

 

“I heard a huge bang,” a local resident told the newspaper.

 

Lars-Ake Stevelind, a rescue official, told Swedish broadcaster SVT “someone has used some type of explosive material” for the object and police are investigating it.
