Stockholm attack: Swedish brewery confirms truck used was theirs

Stockholm [Sweden], Apr. 7 : A Swedish brewery 'Spendrups' on Friday confirmed that the truck which rammed into a departmental store in Stockholm was theirs and had been stolen from them.

At least three people were killed after a lorry rammed into a crowd of people in central Stockholm, few meters away from the Indian Embassy.

Soon after the incident, Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven released a statement to caution the public about the alleged 'terror attack'.

"Sweden has been attacked. All indications are that it was a terrorist attack. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and those injured. The Government is being kept up-to-date and is doing everything it can to assist the relevant authorities in their work.

I encourage everyone to be vigilant and to pay attention to the information from the police," the statement read.
