Terror in Stockholm as ‘hijacked’ truck rams into shoppers with five feared dead and hundreds running for their lives

Mirror

A truck has rammed into a large crowd of people in the centre of Stockholm killing at least five people and injuring others in a suspected terror attack.

Witnesses say the large vehicle – which is thought to be stolen – drove into people in the shopping district of Drottninggatan in the Swedish capital.

Footage from the scene shows terrified shoppers fleeing in terror. Unconfirmed reports say three armed men jumped out of the truck with two shot dead by police.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said everything indicated the crash was a terrorist attack.

It comes after trucks were used in terror attacks in Nice and Berlin last year.

Footage from the scene shows hundreds of people fleeing in terror when the truck crashed into the shoppers at 1.53pm UK time.
