SWEDEN HAS BEEN ATTACKED : TRUCK CRASHES INTO STOCKHOLM STORE, KILLING 4
STOCKHOLM — Sweden’s capital became just the latest major European city to transform into a scene of vehicle-borne carnage Friday as a stolen beer truck slammed into a crowd of pedestrians outside an upscale shopping center, killing four in an assault that the prime minister denounced as a terrorist attack. Police said the driver apparently escaped the smoky and blood-streaked scene. Throughout the afternoon and evening, he was the subject of an intensive manhunt as helicopters searched from the skies, heavily armed officers were deployed through normally tranquil neighborhoods and security at borders was tightened. For hours, the city’s transit system was shut down and streets in the central district were sealed off. Suspect is 39-year-old from Uzbekistan who posted jihadist propaganda.
