Sweden holds minute of silence for truck attack victimsSwedes observed a minute of silence across the country on Monday for the victims of last week’s truck attack by a Uzbek man whom police believe was a jihadist sympathiser. Media reports said the suspect had confessed, claiming he had been ordered by the Islamic State group to carry out the attack against “infidels”. Under grey and rainy skies, the crowd observed a minute of silence at noon (1000 GMT), many visibly moved with tears streaming down their cheeks as a sea of flowers and candles covered the ground.
