DFA: No Filipino hurt in truck attack in Sweden

THE Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) confirmed Saturday that there were no Filipino casualties in the truck attack in Sweden.

Assistant Secretary Charles Jose, DFA spokesman, said the Philippine embassy officials in Stockholm were checking if any Filipino was injured when a truck drove into pedestrians on Stockholm’s busiest shopping street and crashed into a department store in the Swedish capital last Friday.

The incident killed four people and wounded 15 others.

Sweden Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said they were treating the incident as an act of terrorism.

"Sweden has been attacked. Everything points to a terrorist act," Lofven said.

Local authorities arrested two suspects on separate occasions but it was not clear if one of them was the driver. (SunStar Philippines)
