THE suspect who carried out the Stockholm terror attack has been named as Rakhmat Akilov, sources have confirmed to Express.co.uk. He was also wanted for failing to comply with a deportation order, Swedish police said on Sunday.
The 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan drove a 300-tonne truck into bystanders on Queen’s Street on Friday, killing four and injuring 15.
But bystanders said that he was mainly targetting children, and sent prams “flying into the air” as his vehicle zigzagged along the street. Police said that two of those killed were Swedes, one was a British citizen, and one was a Belgian.
The Briton was named as Chrispin Bevington, a dad-of-two, the other dead was a female Belgian tourist, 31, and two Swedes including an 11-year-old girl who was walking home from school.
Police said that all have been identified and their relatives informed.
