Stockholm truck attacker pleads guilty to terrorist acts
Text size Aa Aa

The man accused of crashing a truck into pedestrians in Stockholm has pleaded guilty to terrorist crimes.

Rakhmat Akilov was arrested after four people were killed and 15 injured when a truck rammed a department store.

Swedish prosecutor Hans Ihrman said the investigation is ongoing: “We’ll do whatever we can to get all the guilty persons and put them in front of the court. If there is one person or others. That is what we are investigating right now. That is our main purpose.”

The 39-year-old from Uzbekistan had his asylum claim in Sweden rejected last year.

A British national, a Belgian and two Swedes, one an 11-year-old girl, were killed last Friday.

Since then the centre of Stockholm has become a shrine for the victims.
