Apart from that, the suspect expressed radical ideas and "showed sympathies for extremist organizations, among them Islamic State", Hysing added.

Police held raids overnight to bring other people in for questioning as authorities investigated the deadliest attack in Stockholm in years.

The four victims killed included a British man, a Belgian woman and two Swedes, authorities in those countries said.

Although nine of the 15 people injured remained in hospital, two in intensive care, Stockholm began to return normal on Sunday with the removal of police barricades along the Drottninggatan street where the attack took place.

About a hundred police officers have been deployed to Stockholm after the attack.

A fire broke out Friday afternoon at the store after the truck smashed into its entrance on Stockholm's pedestrian Drottninggatan street.

"I just could not believe this sort of thing would happen, not here in Stockholm and Sweden", she said.

"A technical examination is continuing, we can't go into what it is right now. whether it's a bomb or a flammable device", Mr Eliasson said.

Ihrman and police spokesman Lars Bystrom said only one person had been arrested in the case.

The man suspected of hijacking a truck and using it to commit Friday's attack in Sweden, killing 4, had been denied residency in that country, officials said Sunday.

He laid flowers at the truck crash site, declaring Monday a national day of mourning, with a minute of silence at noon.

Swedish Police confirmed the identity of the suspected truck attacker as a 39-year-old man from Uzbekistan, who is now under police custody.

Of the other three people who died two were Swedish, and one was a 31-year-old woman who had been living in Halle, Belgium.

The suspect was detained Friday in Marsta, about 25 miles north of Stockholm near the city's main worldwide airport.

"We have confirmed the identities of the dead, and their families have been informed", Stockholm police official Jan Evensson told reporters.

"I think it's very important to stay strong together against anything that wants to change our society, which is based on democracy", said Marianne, who gave only her first name and came with her elderly mother.

Meanwhile, the department store that was rammed by the stolen truck apologized for an announcement that it would reopen to sell damaged goods at a "reduced price".

At least four people were killed and over a dozen were injured as a result of the Friday attack in Stockholm.
