Everything points to a terror attack,” said prime minister Stefan Lofven.Pictures showed a large blue truck with a mangled undercarriage smashed into the Ahlens department store.A spokeswoman for transport company Spendrups told AFP that the truck “had been stolen during a delivery to a restaurant.”The incident occurred just before 1300 GMT at the corner of the store and Drottninggatan, the city’s biggest pedestrian street, above ground from Stockholm’s central subway station.Thick smoke was rising from the scene, while video images showed an area blocked off by police and crowds gathering around the police cordon.Police vans circulating in the city using loudspeakers urged people to go straight home and avoid large crowds.The centre of the usually buzzing city was in lockdown, with the central train station evacuated and other shops quickly emptied of shoppers.The Stockholm metro was completely shut down, with the attack taking place at the city’s T-Centralen station, through which all the city’s lines pass.Helicopters could be heard hovering in the sky over central Stockholm, and a large number of police cars and ambulances were dispatched to the scene, witnesses said.European politicians reacted with solidarity to the news of the attack, with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker saying that it was an “attack on us all.”Meanwhile, a spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: “Our thoughts go out to the people in Stockholm, to the injured, their relatives, rescuers and police.”We stand together against terror.”Police cordons the truck which crashed into the Ahlens department store at Drottninggatan in central Stockholm 7 April 2017. Photo: AFP- Latest truck attack -The attack followed a string of assaults in Europe by people using vehicles as weapons.The deadliest attack came last year in France on the Bastille Day national holiday of 14 July when a man rammed a truck into a crowd in the Mediterranean resort of Nice, killing 86 people.He was shot dead by police, and the Islamic State group later claimed responsibility.Last month, Khalid Masood, a 52-year-old convert to Islam known to British security services, drove a car at high speed into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge before launching a frenzied knife attack on a policeman guarding the parliament building.The incident killed five people, while Masood himself was shot dead by police.And in December, a man hijacked a truck and slammed into shoppers at a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12 people.That attacker was shot dead by police in Milan four days later, and the rampage was claimed by the IS.In 2014, IS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani called for attacks on citizens of Western countries and gave instructions on how they could be carried out without military equipment, using rocks or knives, or by running people over in vehicles.Attacks have not been limited to Europe.In 2014, Muslim convert Martin Couture-Rouleau used his car to mow down two soldiers near Montreal, killing one of them. Couture-Rouleau was shot dead by police as he climbed out of his wrecked vehicle brandishing a knife.There have also been false alerts, however.Earlier Friday, Belgium dropped terrorism charges against a driver who sped into a crowded shopping area in Antwerp last month, which sparked fears of a copycat terror attack.However, the driver, a Tunisian man identified as Mohamed R., remains in custody on a weapon offence related to the incident, the federal prosecutor’s office said.
