It appears, per multiple sources, that there has been a serious accident in Sweden, with a truck crashing into a crowd:
A truck has crashed into a crowd of people in Stockholm, Sweden.
Swedish police said several people were injured after the truck was driven into people on the street in central Stockholm.
It is unclear whether the incident is terror-related.
The folks at Zero Hedge are already reporting that there’s at least three fatalities, with some pictures at the link. While we don’t know if it’s a terrorist attack yet, this would fit the recent MO of terrorists plowing vehicles into crowds of civilians, and Sweden is well known to have trouble with its Muslims, so this is definitely a story to keep a close eye on.
