- Story Text: Sweden's Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lovin on Saturday (April 8) visited the scene of a truck attack where four people were killed and scores injured.
The incident took place in central Stockholm on Friday (April 7), when a truck ploughed into a crowd on a shopping street and crashed into a department store.
Lovin said the government was seeking to strengthen identity controls around Sweden's borders as a result of the attack.
Throughout the morning on Saturday, people gathered outside the Ahlens department store, the shop where the truck rammed into, to pay their respects to the victims of the attack.
