Sweden falls silent to honor truck attack victims

Sweden falls silent to honor truck attack victimsSweden’s Prime Minister said on Monday the country would never yield to terrorism, as he led a minute’s silence for those killed and injured when a truck driver mowed down pedestrians on a Stockholm shopping street. “We will never surrender to terror,” Lofven said in his speech outside Stockholm’s city hall, as flags flew at half mast across the capital and church bells chimed while shoppers and tourists thronged the city center. The suspect had been denied permanent residency in Sweden and expressed sympathy for Islamic State.
