Two men in their twenties have been shot dead in Stockholm in an apparent gangland killing.

Swedish police say they were sitting in a car in a suburb northwest of the capital where gangs have been fighting turf wars. The men were reportedly shot in the head several times.

The situation has been described as “alarming and very serious” by local police chief Ulf Johansson. No arrests have been made and the motive is unknown – although media reports say it may be drugs-related.

It brings the number of dead in such attacks to five in the past week – seven since the start of the year.

Fourteen people have been injured.
