Stockholm attack: Suspected device did not detonate

Police in Sweden have confirmed they found a suspicious device in the passenger seat of the lorry which killed 4 people on Friday in a suspected terror attack.

 

Although it is not yet known if the device was a bomb, it has been described as a “bomb-like device”. The area around the suspected bomb was corned off in caution, but did not detonate. All the precautionary steps were taken by the Swedish police to ensure no further harm was caused.

We should stand in solidarity with those in fear, but also remember that, were this potential bomb to have detonated, many more lives may have been lost.
