The Swedish Capital, Drottninggatan, suffered from a tragic confirmed terrorist attack on Friday. Four people have been identified as dead. A man has been arrested for the terror attack and has taken responsibility for these terrible attacks, admitting that his actions were malicious in nature.
Lifeless bodies were in the streets as a truck plowed into pedestrians in the bustling city. Many people were witness to these events, watching police and emergency vehicles quickly follow the suspect, who had crashed his truck into the side of the building.
The King of Sweden has cancelled all of his appointments and is returning home.
From Daily Star:
“We were literally 100 or 200m away having lunch when a couple of police cars went by followed by about 20-30 emergency vehicles continuously.
“I walked up the road and we could just see a lorry, a truck, and what we could only assume was a lifeless body in front of it. “It had a peach or orange towel covering it and there was another body with a white sheet in the middle of the road.”
Helena Reynis told Mirror Online she saw that truck pass her at “high speed”. She added: “I was in Zara at Drottninggatan with my friend Birna Hrönn Gunnlaugsdóttir, we are about to walk out the store and then we hear people scream and run against us into the store and then we see the truck passing us in such high speed.
“We run back into the store to the back and everyone is screaming. Everyone just got stiff but still trying to find a way out the back. Then we hear some noise again and then people start screaming again and panicking even more. “Everyone starts running out through the backenterance of Zara to Hötorget. People are running into everyone so my purse string even broke from all the chaos.”
