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 7, 2017, 10:05 PM (IDT)

A man was arrested in northern Stockholm after four people were killed and 15 injured when a truck plowed Friday into shoppers on the Drottninggatan Street of Stockholm. Prime Minister Stefan Lofven says it was almost certainly a terror attack.  An image was released of the suspect wearing a hooded jacket, who was seen fleeing toward a nearby subway station. Police shut down the entire underground system for the manhunt. The suspect earlier hijacked the truck from the Swedish beer maker Spendrups, while its driver was unloading a delivery at a restaurant. The driver was not injured. Helsinki police have tightened security measures at the center of the Finnish capital. Traffic via Orseund Bridge between Sweden and Denmark was also partially limited at the request of Swedish police.

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.
