The man suspected of driving a truck into a crowd of people in Stockholm on Friday was a rejected asylum-seeker from Uzbekistan who four months ago was ordered to be deported, according to Swedish police.
Four people were killed when the unnamed 39-year-old man, now under arrest, allegedly drove a stolen beer truck into a busy department store in the capital.
Not only was the suspect wanted since February for failing to leave the country, but he was also reported by police on Sunday to have displayed sympathies to terrorist groups including the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS/ISIL).
Sweden joins a growing list of European countries targeted by Islamic terror less than two months after its government responded coolly when President Trump drew attention in a speech to the security risks associated with the asylum policies of countries like Sweden and Germany.
