Sweden’s security chief has raised the country’s terror threat level to four on a scale of five, citing “concrete information.” An investigation has been launched regarding the “preparation of terrorist offenses.”

“One of the reasons for the increase is that the security service has received concrete information and concluded that we must act within the framework of our counter-terror work,” Sweden’s Security Police (SAPO) said in a statement.

“The strategic threat assessment is based partly on what is known in the present, and on possible future developments…” the statement continues, noting that the threat level is “assessed continuously” and “may change.”

It goes on to state that the chief prosecutor at the National Security Service has launched a preliminary investigation regarding “preparation for terrorist offenses.”

The decision to raise the terror threat level was based on data from the National Center for Terrorist Threat Assessment. The center is responsible for producing threat assessments for Sweden and Swedish interests abroad.
