Beer Truck in Stockholm Crashes into Department Store

STOCKHOLM (AP) – Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says everything indicates that a truck which has crashed into a major department store in downtown Stockholm is “a terror attack.”

Photos at the scene in downtown Stockholm show that the truck, which killed several people, is a large beer truck.

The Aftonbladet daily says Swedish beermaker Spendrups said its truck had been carjacked earlier Friday.

Photos showed the beer truck sticking out of the Ahlens department store.

Swedish broadcaster SVT said shots were fired at the scene, though it wasn’t clear who fired them.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says the truck crash “is an act of terror” that has killed at least two people.

Swedish media report that up to five people have been killed, and Sweden’s intelligence agency says many people have been injured in the crash.
