DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. April 8, 2017, 11:04 AM (IDT)

The man arrested on suspicion of killing four people Friday – by ramming a stolen beer truck into Stockholm’s  crowded Drottninggatan pedestrian street – is being held “on suspicion of terrorist crimes through murder,” Karin Rosander, Sweden’s prosecutor’s office spokeswoman said Saturday.. She said he matched the image of a hoodie-clad man released after the attack which also injured 15 people. A second man was detained Saturday. The Swedish daily Aftonbladet described the first suspect as a 39-year old father-of-four from Uzbekistan who had claimed he was responsible for the attack. Some media reported that he had posted jihadist propaganda on Faceboook, depicting victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
