Sweden mourns 4 killed, 15 wounded in Stockholm truck attack
The Stockholm terrorist attack suspect, Rakhmat Akilov, 39, confessed to his crime during a pre-trial hearing in Stockholm, Sverige Radio reports.
At least two people were killed when a truck was driven into pedestrians on the busiest street in the center of Stockholm, in what appeared to be the latest use of a vehicle as a weapon of terror in Europe. "His position is that he admits to a terrorist crime and accepts therefore that he will be detained", said lawyer Johan Eriksson, adding that the judge has asked not to divulge details.
Police are holding a 39-year-old Uzbek man who they believe was the driver of the hijacked beer truck that crashed into a department store, leaving death in its wake.
A truck rammed into people on a central Stockholm street on Friday before crashing into a department store, killing four people and injuring 15 others.
Akilov was arrested just hours after the attack.

Sweden will "never go back to the days of mass immigration" after it emerged the Stockholm attacker was a failed asylum seeker, the Swedish prime minister has said.

Killed were two Swedes, a British man and a Belgian woman.

Intelligence agency Sapo has said the Akilov had appeared on their radar past year for undisclosed reasons, but national police commissioner Dan Eliasson said "there was nothing in the system that indicated (the suspect) would do something like what he did on Friday". "We will get through this together", Lofven said.
