More suspects arrested over the Stockholm, Sweden truck attack

Police investigating the Stockholm truck attack have arrested six more suspects after three were bundled out of a car and police raided a property 12 miles from the scene where four died.

Officers smashed the window on the driver's side of the vehicle, thought to be linked to the atrocity, and took three people into custody at 5pm, local media reported.
Later, heavily armed police raided a flat in the suburb of Vårberg and surrounded three people in the courtyard.
Police have not yet commented on the arrests.
Earlier it was revealed the 39-year-old Uzbek man arrested on suspicion of organising the attack was known to the police and had ISIS propaganda on his laptop.
Police also confirmed a homemade bomb was found inside the truck and the man arrested is 'likely' to be the driver. 
He was qualified to handle explosives, a former colleague who interviewed him for an asbestos disposal job last autumn has said.
The head of Sweden's domestic intelligence agency told a press conference today that the suspect had been on authorities' radar some time ago. 
Anders Thornberg, head of the Swedish Security Service, said: 'The suspect didn't appear in our recent files but he earlier has been in our files.'
In a further development, the first victim of the attack has been identified as an 11-year old girl who was on her way home from school when the Islamist fanatic struck.
Her mother had previously released a desperate appeal for information about her whereabouts on Facebook. MailOnline is not identifying her at this time following a request from her family.
