Up to five people are believed to have been killed in a terrorist attack when a stolen truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm before running through the city centre shooting at and stabbing pedestrians.

Three men were seen leaping from the lorry and opening fire on police who had surrounded the hijacked vehicle at around 3pm local time.

Police said the vehicle crashed into a group of people on the street outside a shopping centre after racing down six streets.

Hundreds of shoppers were seen fleeing for their lives after the articulated truck rammed into the corner of the building. Dozens were believed to have been injured.

The driver was said by witnesses to be wearing a balaclava. Two suspects are thought to have been arrested.

The incident took place at Ahlens, a department store in Klarabergsgatan.

Armed ‘terrorists’ were then seen running into Stockholm’s Central railway station and opening fire. Two people were also said to have been stabbed.

Police have shut the station down, which is the main hub for communal transport in the city.
