Thousands attend Stockholm vigil, police probe suspect's IS sympathiesHuge crowds gathered in Stockholm for a “Lovefest” vigil against terrorism on Sunday, two days after a truck attack that police believe was committed by an Uzbek jihadist sympathiser. The motive was not known, but the method resembled previous attacks using vehicles in Nice, Berlin and London, all of them claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group. According to police, the suspect was a sympathiser of extremist groups and was facing deportation after his residency permit application was denied.
