Swedish anti-terror police 'pelted with stones' while investigating Stockholm attack

People look on at the scene after a truck crashed into a department store injuring several people in central Stockholm Sweden

"We have confirmed the identities of the dead, and their families have been informed", Evensson said.

Earlier, Swedish police said the man they arrested "resembles the person we earlier have sought after" in the truck attack.

Ihrman and police spokesman Lars Bystrom said only one person had been arrested in the case.

People lay flowers at a memorial ceremony at Sergels Torg plaza close to the point where a truck drove into a department store two days before.

Hysing declined to give further information about the raids, but said "the evidence looks very strong" that the Uzbek man was the driver of the commandeered truck.

Police have said that the first man arrested had shown interest in extremist groups and had his permanent residency application rejected in June 2016.

Police also said they found a suspicious device in the passenger seat of the vehicle, though they would not confirm whether or not the device was some kind of bomb, as has been reported in the Swedish media.

"And he's been wanted by the police though he's not been in custody of the migration office", said National Strategic Commander Jonas Hysing.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May has spoken with her Swedish counterpart to offer to work together against extremist attacks. The suspects in all the attacks are thought to have been motivated by the views of Islamic State militants.

The four victims killed in Friday's attack included a British man, a Belgian woman and two Swedes, authorities in those countries said. "But you never know, you never know (what can happen)", said Sankar Ramasuppu, a bank worker living in Stockholm.

Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says Swedes "must get through this".

Sweden's public broadcaster SVT reported that a bag of explosives was found inside the truck on the driver's seat and the suspected attacker suffered burns from a partial detonation.

Today thousands of people gather in Stockholm to show that peace and love will win over violence and hate.

It was the second terror attack in Stockholm. Another 10 people are being treated in hospital and four of them are in a serious condition.

In December 2010, a suicide bomber blew himself up, also on the Drottninggatan street, slightly injuring several passers-by.
