Stockholm attack: Sweden remembers terror victims

Sweden remembered the four victims of the Stockholm lorry attack by holding moments of silence on Monday.

Thousands of people in the capital fell silent to honour the dead, including 41-year-old British victim Chris Bevington.

At one memorial ceremony, the country's prime minister said Sweden had joined the UK and Belgium in suffering horrendous acts of terrorism.

Meanwhile, the alleged attacker is due to appear in court on Tuesday, as ITV News Correspondent Sally Lockwood reports.

Swedish citizens are expected to deliver a show of solidarity against terror as the nation prepares to formally mourn the victims of the lorry attack in Stockholm.

Hundreds of people laid flowers close to the scene of Friday's attack, including Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, while a street demonstration is anticipated on Sunday.

Mr Lofven confirmed a minute's silence will be held across Sweden at midday on Monday to commemorate the dead.

A 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan has been arrested on suspicion of "terrorist crimes through murder" after the attack which claimed four lives.

Hundreds of floral tributes have been laid in Stockholm just 24 hours after a lorry attack killed four people in the Swedish capital.

The Scandinavian country's prime minister Stefan Löfven was among those to lay flowers in memory of the victims.

In the wake of the attack he urged Swedes to "get through this", and strolled through the streets to chat with people.

A "suspect device" was found in the driver's seat of the lorry used in the Stockholm attack, police have said.

At a press conference, detectives also revealed the 39-year-old suspect from Uzbekistan was known to security services but that the intelligence was "marginal".

The man is not thought to have spoken to detectives since he was arrested yesterday.

ITV News reporter Sally Lockwood said Swedish police are drawing "clear similarities" with the Westminster attack on 22 March.

Stockholm attack suspect is 39-year-old from Uzbekistan

The Swedish prosecutor has confirmed that the man suspected of carrying out Friday's lorry attack in Stockholm is a 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan.

Security services had intelligence on him but he was regarded as a marginal character, police said.

He was arrested in the north of the city on Friday after a high-speed police chase.
