  • 7/4 2017: Suspected terrorist attack in Stockholm, Sweden - Truck mows down pedestrians

    Just in. There are several dead and police says they suspect it's an act of terrorism.

    Occured in central Stockholm on Drottninggatan a little while ago. It's a pretty crowded area on a friday afternoon like this one.

    Sounds like a Nice/Berlin style attack, if it is indeed confirmed to be terrorism and not just some random homicidal loon.

    Also it's a pedestrian only street, lined with shops, it is not someone who just took a wrong turn.

                These reports always trickle in when something like this happens, in 9/10 cases they turn out to be nothing. But yeah, I vividly recall the day Breivik attacked and how everyone was focused on the bombing and it took aaaages before people started realizing all those other reports of gunfire were real and indeed far worse than anyone could have imagined. Ugh, gives me real bad chills just thinking about it...

                Anyway, the train traffic to/from Stockholm Central has been suspended and the metro is being evacuated as well as we speak. They're doing this by the book, better safe than sorry...

                R.I.P. to the innocent...

                        These two connected with the truck attack?

                          Would seem odd if not.

                            Confirmed shooting at Hötorget, right next to the truck attack.
                            Apperantly three armed men jumped out of the truck after it drove through the crowd.

                              Just another day in modern Europe.

                              RIP for those three and for possible upcoming deaths in advance.
