Man killed in explosion at Stockholm station

Injuries after explosion at Stockholm metro station

"The man was seriously hurt injured after he picked up something from the ground and this device exploded", said Stockholm police spokesperson Sven-Erik Olsson, according to the Independent. "He has been taken to hospital".

The man, in his 60s, was rushed to hospital but later died while his companion, a woman in her mid-40s, received minor wounds to her face and both legs, Olsson said.

But police haven't confirmed the exact nature of the explosive device.

According to a Swedish police report published a year ago, Sweden is the European country where criminal gangs use the most grenades, often from stocks from the former Yugoslavia. "Nothing indicates that the (injured) couple were targeted", said Olsson, adding there was nothing to suggest an act of terrorism.

The incident occurred at about 11:00 hours, local time, and the police immediately closed the station.

"I heard a huge bang", one local resident told Swedish paper Aftonbladet.
