Sweden: ISIS sympathizer from Uzbekistan arrested in deadly Stockholm truck jihad; avoided deportation

How long the man lived in Sweden is still unclear. On his Facebook page, he has posted propaganda films for IS. He also liked a picture of bloody people, taken seconds after the explosion at the Boston Marathon April 15, 2013.

The elephant in the room no media dare mention: Uzbekistan is at least 88% Muslim (mostly Sunni).

(CNN) – A man arrested on suspicion of terrorism offenses after the Stockholm truck attack is from the central Asian republic of Uzbekistan and was known to intelligence services, Swedish authorities said.

Suspicions about the arrested man have strengthened during the course of the investigation, Dan Eliasson, chief of the Swedish Police told reporters Saturday.

“We confirm that we have found a device in the truck that doesn’t belong there. We are now investigating its content,” Eliasson said.

Prosecutor Hans Ihrman said the arrested man was a 39-year-old from Uzbekistan.

The attack Friday in the heart of Sweden’s capital killed four people and injured about 15 more. Ten of the injured — nine adults and one child — are still being treated in three different hospitals in the city, the Stockholm County Council said Saturday. Four of the adults have serious injuries.

Earlier, Sweden’s public broadcaster SVT reported that a bag of undetonated explosives had been found inside the truck, which was stolen minutes before the attack as it made a delivery at a restaurant. The attacker apparently suffered burns caused by the explosives, which did not detonate properly, SVT said.

The man was detained north of Stockholm in the early hours of Friday (Thursday evening ET.)

The individual has featured in previous intelligence reports from last year, Anders Thornberg, chief of the Security Service said. However, the security services were not able to confirm that intelligence, so he was not on their radar, he said.

Their focus is now to prevent further attacks and investigate if there were other accomplices, Thornberg said.

The prosecutor has until noon Tuesday to ask the courts to detain the suspect, said Karin Rosander, spokeswoman for Sweden’s prosecutor’s office.

The attack happened just before 3 p.m. local time. Eyewitnesses reported seeing the beer truck speeding along Drottninggatan before it crashed into the front of a department store. The company that owned it said it had been hijacked as it made a delivery nearby.

According to eyewitness Veronica Durango, the driver “put his foot on the gas and ran through the crowd.”

“He came from Olof Palmes Street and drove down to Drottninggatan,” Durango told CNN in a phone interview.

“It was like he was driving through paper. It’s like it was nothing. I can’t even believe how a person could do such a thing. And then he just kept on going. I was in shock.”

Parliament and the Stockholm subway were placed in lockdown in the aftermath of the attack. All train services in and out of Stockholm Central Station were halted and people were evacuated, the state railway company said.

Officials told reporters that border controls had also been set up to monitor the identity of those leaving Sweden.

And therein lies the longstanding problem that has allowed a rape epidemic and terror attacks to proliferate. Sweden should be regulating who comes IN to the country not leaving. More below.

Swedish authorities said the 39-year-old man suspected of driving a truck into a crowd in downtown Stockholm had been wanted by police for failing to comply with a deportation order.

The Uzbek national, who was detained late Friday, had sought residency in Sweden in 2014, a request the state denied in June last year, police said on Sunday. In late February, police issued a warrant in his name for failing to report for his deportation.

“He had gone missing,” said Jonas Hysing, national strategic commander for the Swedish police. “He was not present at the address that he had provided.”

On Sunday, prosecutors said police had detained a second man who is being investigated over possible involvement in the attack, for which no group has claimed responsibility.

  1. no media mention of islam on this
    just another lone wolf crazy person
    who happens to be a muslime
    so lets see that makes how many thousand lone wolf attacks from crazy people that all happen to be muslime hhhhmmmmmm

  2. The joys of Multiculturalism. When are the people of the West going to realize that Sharia wanting Muslims will never want to assimilate into any Western Culture. They only wish to destroy everything else and replace it with Islam and Sharia Law. It’s been that way since the 7th Century.

  3. “We are not here to adopt Western values, WE ARE HERE TO COLONIZE … and spread Islamic sharia law” – Tariq Ramadan
    “If we are practicing muslims, WE ARE ABOVE THE LAW OF THE LAND.” -Mustafa Carroll, Director, CAIR Texas, USA.

    . We are the Muslims. We drink the blood of the enemy…That is Islam and that is jihad,” – Abu Izzadeen

    “We will use your democracy to destroy your democracy.”
– Syrian born cleric, Omar Bakri
    Western peoples willingly capitulate to Islamic mores—in the name of tolerance, multiculturalism, political correctness, or just plain cowardice—Muslims are becoming more emboldened, making more demands and threats, as they realize they need not militarily defeat the West in order to resuscitate their supremacist birthright.
    More appeasement from the bullied always brings about more demands from the bully

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
