STOCKHOLM, April 8, 2017

Two men have been arrested after a truck crashed into a Stockholm department store on Friday, killing at least four people.
 
The first man to be arrested is being held on suspicion of committing a terrorist crime by murder, a BBC report said.
 
Earlier, police released a grainy CCTV image of a person of interest, with a second arrest reportedly made later.
 
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has called it a terrorist attack.
 
More than a dozen people were injured. Eight adults and a child remain in hospital, the report said.
 
The lorry crashed into the front of Ahlens department store in the middle of the afternoon on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), one of the city's major pedestrian thoroughfares.
 
The beer company that owns the vehicle said it was hijacked outside a nearby restaurant, where it was making a delivery, the report said.
