One man died and two others were injured in two simultaneous explosions in a city-center shopping district in Stockholm Saturday evening.
The foreign minister deemed the explosions terrorist attacks, The New York Times reported. An email sent to news organizations just minutes prior to the attacks could prove a possible connection.
According to BBC News, a vehicle exploded outside the shopping center at 5 p.m. Saturday. The second explosion took place nearly 15 minutes later on a nearby street. A man's body, with blast injuries to his torso, was found at the site of the second explosion.
Swedish newspapers reported the man was a suicide bomber, The New York Times said. This has not yet been confirmed by police officials.
These recent blasts have caused shock amongst Swedish citizens, who have been known to have a peaceful society.
