Stockholm ‘Terrorist’ Truck Attack Causes Deaths in Crowd: Police

At least two people were killed and many others injured Friday when a truck was driven into a Stockholm department store in what Sweden's prime minister said was likely an act of terrorism.

The vehicle plowed into a crowd on the busy pedestrianized street of Drottninggatan before ramming into the side of the Ahlens store, the country's security agency said.

Eyewitnesses described panic as smoke from the crash filled the building.

"Everything indicates that this is a terrorist act," Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said.

It would mark the latest in a series of low-tech, vehicle-based terror attacks across Europe over recent years.
