On 11 December 2010, Drottninggatan was the site of the 2010 Stockholm bombings. Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, an Iraqi-born Swedish citizen, was killed by one of his own bombs and two other people were injured.  The incident was Sweden's first suicide bombing.
Drottninggatan means Queen Street and is rather like a cross between Oxford Street, Regent Street and Bond Street.   It's very much like Kartnerstrasse in Vienna, ie pedestrians only with lots of seats.   LL

Thanks, LL! Let's hope this is 'just' a road accident, but it seems that shots have been fired, which isn't good.

The Swedish PM has apparently said that this is a terrorist attack.

Thanks, Max. So, the death toll of innocents is now up to five. Looks like Sweden's bizarre progressive policies haven't made them immune after all.

Whoever could have forseen that?

some reports are saying three armed men jumped out of the truck with two shot dead by police, so they could account for the additional deaths.

Ah. Well, that would be good, I have nothing at all against terrorists getting shot dead.

Being Sweden, they are doubtless going to claim the murderer is 'a mentally ill lone wolf' and that it has NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM.

Because of what happened to Muslims under the Russian Empire and later the USSR, many in the Stans hold deep resentment and hatred of Christians and are therefore good targets for radicalisation, especially by imans and in the mosques and prisons.  They are easy game for those wishing to cause dissent and chaos, who believe in the final supremacy of Islam etc.    LL

It will mean a lot to Swedish people - more than empty words from politicians.

Norway police destroy suspect device in Oslo.

Norwegian police said Sunday they had destroyed a suspect "bomb-like" device in the capital Oslo and made one arrest, on the heels of a deadly truck attack in neighbouring Sweden that killed four people.

"Bomb disposal officers carried out a controlled explosion overnight Saturday," a Norwegian police statement said.

Police cordoned off part of the busy Grønland district and evacuated local bars and restaurants after the crude device -- described as having the capacity to cause only limited damage – was discovered Saturday evening.

Norway's PST police security agency is investigating.

There were no immediate further details.

The device was discovered a day after four people were killed and 15 injured after a truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm. Swedish police have detained a 39-year-old Uzbek man in connection with that incident.
.............................................
Norwegian-Swedish border tightened after Stockholm attack.

Those planning to cross the Norwegian border with Sweden are advised to bring their passports, as Swedish police have introduced tighter border controls following Friday's attack in Stockholm.

Swedish police decided to enhance the country's border controls following the suspected terror attack in Stockholm on Friday. This would likely affect travellers planning to cross the border to Sweden, Norwegian police said.

"The police can reinforce the control at all border checkpoints, but I don't know anything about where and when they are going to do it," police spokesperson Mattias Lindholm told NRK.

"My general advice is that everyone planning to travel to and from Sweden should bring their passport," he said.

Sweden's borders will remain reinforced for ten days, Swedish police said.

Stockholm truck attack suspect is rejected asylum seeker, 'interested in Isis': police.

The suspected Stockholm truck attacker had shown interest in extremist groups and had his permanent residency application rejected in June 2016, Swedish police said on Sunday.

"We know that he showed interest for extremist organisations like IS [Islamic State, ed.],"police chief Jonas Hysing told reporters, adding that two Swedes, one Briton and a Belgian were killed in the attack.

The suspect, who has only been officially identified as a 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan, "applied for a permanent residency permit in 2014," Hysing said.

"The Migration Agency rejected it in June 2016 and also decided that he was to be expelled," he added.

"In December 2016, he was informed by the Migration Agency that he had four weeks to leave the country.

In February 2017, the case was handed over to the police to carry out the order, since the person had gone underground," he said.

But police apparently never found the man.

On Friday, the suspect is alleged to have barreled a stolen beer truck several hundred metres (yards) down the bustling pedestrian street Drottninggatan in the heart of Stockholm.

The vehicle mowed down shoppers before slamming into the facade of the busy Åhlens department store.

The motive for the attack is not known.

Thousands of people were to gather in central Stockholm on Sunday for a "Lovefest" vigil against terrorism.

How the truck attack brought the best out of Stockholm.

Stockholmers paying tribute to the victims on Saturday.

Friday's deadly attack shook Stockholm. But the core of Swedish society – trust and openness – remains untouched by terror, the capital's residents and mayor Karin Wanngård tell The Local.

Stockholmers woke up to a calm and composed city on Saturday, surreal and oddly normal at the same time. The usual dads with prams and dog walkers were joined in the city by police investigators while residents and government officials paid tribute to the victims at the scene of Friday's deadly attack.

“How do we move on from here?” a reporter asked Crown Princess Victoria when she and her husband Prince Daniel carefully placed a bouquet of red roses next to the other floral tributes.

“Together,” she said.   More at link.

No, I can't imagine what the motive would be. It's a complete mystery.

Together,” she said.

Well, it does nothing to prevent future attacks, but IMO, Keeping calm and carrying on is a healthier attitude than running round with your hair on fire, shooting everything in sight and causing even more panic. These lorry attacks are so unpredictable, that maybe normality is the only way to cope?

I personally cannot bear candles and twavatars, and all the rest of it, but if it helps people feel stronger, mentally, I suppose there are worse reactions.
