Several individuals suspected of preparation to commit a terrorist offence

2018-04-30

Three individuals have been arrested on suspicion of preparation to carry out a terrorist attack. The Swedish Security Service, assisted by the Swedish Police Authority, has taken action in several locations in Sweden on 30 April.

The preparations related to the suspected crime have been ongoing for some time. Actions have been taken in northern Sweden and in the Stockholm area. The suspected individuals have been monitored by the Swedish Security Service for some time.

The investigation, which is headed by a national security prosecutor, is being run by the Swedish Security Service. Because the investigation is underway, it is subject to secrecy and we are therefore unable to communicate any further details relating to this case.

The terrorist threat remains on level three (elevated threat) of a five-level scale.
