Police in the Swedish capital Stockholm have arrested a man over the terror attack that has now killed at least four people and injured many, including children. The man is believed to be from Uzbekistan and is reported to be an Isis sympathiser.

The truck “deliberately” drove in to crowds of shopper’s zig zagging down the road in Drottinggatan Friday afternoon.

Swedish media has reported the man arrested is thought to be the driver.  The Aftonbladet newspaper said that truck was reported hijacked from a beer maker Sendrups early Friday.

The Swedish prime minister Stefan Lovfen said “everything indicates that this is a terrorist attack.” He went on to say he will not give in to terrorists trying to destroy democracy.

He added: “If it is a terrorist attack, and regardless of whether it was carried out by an organisation or a lone perpetrator, the aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy, to sow discord between people so that more people will begin to hate and distrust one another.”

“But those kinds of acts will never succeed in Sweden. We know that our enemy is this kind of vile murderer – not one another. We will use all of Sweden’s strength to track you down.”

“Our message will always be clear: you cannot suppress us, you cannot control our lives, you will never win.”
