Police investigating Friday’s atrocity arrested three more suspects in central Stockholm on Saturday afternoon.

It is understood that the suspects were taken from a car that was connected to the suspected terrorist.

Officers smashed the window on the driver’s side as they took the suspects into custody at five o’clock, Swedish media reported.
The police has not yet commented on the arrests.

It comes as a major police operation is taking place in VĂ„rberg, a suburb of Western Stockholm about 12 miles from the scene of the attack.

Police special forces have been seen raiding a property in the area and technicians have removed a number of items of evidence from the address.

Earlier it was revealed the 39-year-old Uzbek man who has been arrested over the Stockholm truck attack was known to the police and has 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.

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.’
