Last quote about Stockholm attack 2017

Christian Christensen
Of course Sweden isn’t perfect, but those who love to portray it as teeming with terrorists and naive towards reality, are just cynical hypocrites. There are few countries in the world that have “lost their innocence” as many times as Sweden. Even before a suspected terrorist and Isis supporter killed four and injured many more in last week’s attack in central Stockholm, Sweden’s policies were being portrayed on the programmes of Fox News and pages of the Daily Mail as, at best, exercises in well-meaning-but-naive multiculturalism, and at worst terrorist appeasement.feedback

Jonas Hysing

We know that he showed sympathies for extremist organisations, among them Islamic State. A wonderful husband, son, father, brother and close friend to many. The family requests absolute privacy at this incredibly difficult time to mourn his passing in peace.feedback

Stefan Lofven

We will never surrender to terrorism. We will get through this together.feedback

Anders Ygeman

We have taken the first step, criminalising travelling to and fighting with a terrorist organisation in another country or receiving terrorist training. The next step is criminalising participation that is not linked to killing - for example, being a chef for or supporting a terrorist organisation in another way other than being a part of killing or making bombs.feedback

Dawn Fitzpatrickstarted

Julia gives me hope that my children and their peers will grow up in a world where autism is normalized, rather than stigmatized.feedback

Stefan Lofven

We will hunt down these murderers with the full power of Sweden's democracy. There will be no compromises.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Sweden will never go back to the mass immigration we had in 2015. It's only through the EU that we can create a sustainable system for immigrants.feedback

John Bevington

We are all devastated by the untimely and tragic death of our talented, compassionate and caring son Chris. [He was ] a wonderful husband, son, father, brother and close friend to many. The family requests absolute privacy at this incredibly difficult time to mourn his passing in peace.feedback

Jonas Hysing

He applied for a permanent residency permit in 2014. The Migration Agency rejected it in June 2016 and also decided that he was to be deported.feedback

Jan Eliasson - United Nations

There is nothing to indicate that we've got the wrong man. On the contrary, the suspicions have strengthened. A technical examination is ongoing, we can't go into what it is right now ... whether it's a bomb or a flammable device.feedback

Jonas Hysing

We know he has been sympathetic to extremist organizations. The efforts to locate (these people) is both time-consuming and resource-intensive.feedback

Svein Arild Jørundland

What's happened is that a police patrol came across a guy in the Gronland area who acted in a suspicious manner. In relation to this individual the police found an object which we need to investigate.feedback

Gustaf Öhrn

We would like to ask our customers for forgiveness for a poor decision. The background to it is that we were blinded by our eagerness to open quickly. We want to stand up for an open society and all of the values that we represent. It was a bad decision and bad decisions must be changed. Our intention was not to make money out of this difficult situation. I am truly unhappy that it is being perceived this way.feedback

Jonas Hysing

He (the suspect) has applied for permit residence in Sweden. He has been denied that. And he's been wanted by the police though he's not been in custody of the migration office.feedback

Husam Kranda

We believe it's our duty to come here and show our support for the Swedish society. I know it's a difficult time, there is a lot going on within Swedish society and internationally. But today is not about that, it's about showing support for our neighbours and our beloved ones.feedback

Eva Udd

I want to show I'm not afraid to go out. I usually never go to things like this, but this just felt so very important.feedback

Jonas Hysing

We know that the suspect had expressed sympathy for extremist organizations, among them ISIS.feedback

Helga Hullmann

Police have arrested a person and we have appointed a public defender.feedback

Jon Coaffee

Equally there are many potential targets that are undefended. The key question raised by the Stockholm incident, as was raised recently in London, is can we or should we seek to secure all crowded locations in a city?feedback

Jan Eliasson - United Nations

We're focusing, of course, on how he has entered the country, where he has been and what kind of contacts he has had, what we can see from his friends and so on.feedback

Anna Carlstedt

Do we somehow need a more repressive policy? I think it is very important now not to rush into something, to see how we can safeguard this open society and still be able to protect ourselves.feedback

Hans Brun

They put Stockholm under lockdown quite quickly. They shut down the subway. They found the perpetrator quickly and, obviously, had some reliable intelligence quite early on. Given the information that the Swedish Security Service has been providing in recent years, there are a couple of hundred people in Sweden who have the capability and the will to carry out these type of attacks. Prevention is the million-dollar question. You cannot monitor everyone all of the time.feedback

Magnus Ranstorp

You need legislation that bites and is effective. And that may be solved by criminalizing associating with a terrorist organization.feedback

Jonas Hysing

He applied for a permanent residency permit in 2014. The Migration Agency rejected it in June 2016 and also decided that he was to be expelled. In December 2016, he was informed by the Migration Agency that he had four weeks to leave the country. In February 2017, the case was handed over to the police to carry out the order, since the person had gone underground.feedback

Kjell Lindgren

We have a lot of people who are being taken to police offices throughout Stockholm for questioning. (We are doing) all the things that are necessary to make a good investigation. That means we are going to continue to check objects, people, vehicles and so on.feedback

Didier Reyders

We have unfortunately have a lost a compatriot in the Stockholm attack.feedback

Stefan Lofven

We must get through this. Life must go on. We in Sweden want an open society.feedback

Jan Eliasson - United Nations

He was known… there was intelligence about him in the security police but…rather of a marginal character.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Terrorists want us to be afraid, want us to change our behaviour, want us to not live our lives normally, but that is what we're going to do. We're also determined to continue to be an open society; a democratic society.feedback

Anders Thornberg

The suspect didn't appear in our recent files but he earlier has been in our files.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

We stand in solidarity with the people of #Sweden. An attack on any of our Member States is an attack on us all.feedback

Jan Evensson

We still have a crime scene investigation on which we have a huge job to do.feedback

Stefan Lofven

If it is a terrorist attack, and regardless of whether it was carried out by an organisation or a lone perpetrator, the aim of terrorism is to undermine democracy, to sow discord between people so that more people will begin to hate and distrust one another. But those kinds of acts will never succeed in Sweden. We know that our enemy is this kind of vile murderer – not one another. We will use all of Sweden's strength to track you down. Our message will always be clear: you cannot suppress us, you cannot control our lives, you will never win.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Sweden has shown its best side during this attack. To help each other, support each other, and open our homes to other humans. We want to have an open society in Sweden. We shall continue with that. Everything indicates that this is a terrorist act.feedback

Magnus Ranstorp

Sweden had been somewhat like an ostrich. People were reluctant to talk about it and admit there was a problem. Now it's not something far away, in Nice or in Berlin. It's come home. That will have consequences.feedback

Gahangir Sarvari

I can never forget when we made eye contact. I was screaming at people why they didn't call the police and screaming at people who were taking photos with their phones. I didn't know what to do.feedback

Svein Arild Jørundland

I can not confirm [it is a bomb], but it is an object that is about 30 by 30 centimetres, that is to say that there is potential for damage in it, but it is of such a nature that we want the bomb squad to examine it.feedback

Mattias Lindholm

The police can reinforce the control at all border checkpoints, but I don't know anything about where and when they are going to do it.feedback

Dan Eliason

There is nothing that tells us that we have the wrong person. We have found a device in the vehicle that shouldn't be there. It could be a bomb or an incendiary object, we are still investigating it.feedback

Carina Lindstrom

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

Lars Byström

The person in question has been arrested as the culprit ... in this case the driver.feedback

Fredrik Reinfeldt

The feeling is that the price of the open society is that it's very tough for us to shelter against these kinds of initiatives taken by a single person. We are preparing, we understand the risks; but we are not willing to close down the openness that is the flare of freedom that we love so much.feedback

Rikard Gauffin

A massive truck starts driving ... and mangles everything and just drives over exactly everything. It was so terrible and there were bodies lying everywhere ... it was really terrifying.feedback

Lars Byström

We have one person in custody, and we think he is the driver of the truck.feedback

Peng Wu

My wife and I are struck by the low police presence here. I expected something like this because it's happening all over Europe.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

One of Europe's most vibrant and colorful cities appears to have been struck by those wishing it – and our very way of life – harm. An attack on any of our Member States is an attack on us all.feedback

Katarina Libert

We were running, we were crying – everyone was in shock. We rushed down the street, and I glanced to the right and saw the truck. People were lying on the ground. They were not moving. Some people felt that this was just a matter of time. Paris, Brussels, London and now Stockholm. I just had a feeling something like this would happen.feedback

Stefan Lofven

If it's a terrorist act, the aim is to undermine democracy, but such acts will never succeed in Sweden. Our message is clear: You will never ever win. All indications are that it was a terrorist attack.feedback

Hasan Sidi

One of them died... I don't know if the other one made it. The police were shocked. Everyone was shocked.feedback

Annevi Petersson

I heard the noise, I heard the screams, I saw the people. Just outside the store there was a dead dog, the owner screaming. There was a lady lying with a severed foot. There was blood everywhere.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

One of Europe's most vibrant and colorful cities appears to have been struck by those wishing it -- and our very way of life -- harm. Attack on any of our [EU] member states is an attack on us all.feedback

Glen Foran

I turned around and saw a big truck coming towards me. It swerved from side to side. It didn't look out of control, it was trying to hit people. It hit people, it was terrible. It hit a pram with a kid in it, demolished it. It took a long time for police to get here. I suppose, from their view, it was quick, but it felt like forever.feedback

Jan Eliasson - United Nations

A truck was driven into Ahlen's department store on Drottninggatan. There are many people injured. We can't confirm numbers of injuries or deaths at this press conference. The medical authorities will confirm that. We have no contact with the person or persons who drove the truck.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Sweden has been attacked. Everything points to the fact that this is a terrorist attack. The Government is being kept up-to-date and is doing everything it can to assist the relevant authorities in their work. I encourage everyone to be vigilant and to pay attention to the information from the police.feedback

Jan Evensson

We have arrested one in whom we are particularly interested. We continue to investigate at full force.feedback

In our country, people know, and not by hearsay, about the atrocities of international terrorism. At this difficult time, Russians mourn together with the people of Sweden.feedback

Steffen Seibert

Our thoughts are with the people in Stockholm, the injured, relatives, rescuers and police. We stand together against terror.feedback

Jan Granroth

We stood inside a shoe store, and we heard no noise, and so people start screaming. So I look out at the store, so I see a huge truck slams into the wall opposite. It got out of control. I saw at least two being run over. I ran as fast as I could from there.feedback

Stefan Lofven

Sweden has been attacked. This indicates that it is an act of terror. You look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They're having problems like they never thought possible.feedback

Maria Nathalie

People started running down the stairs when the fire alarm started. And when we came down to the bottom of the building all we could see was a lot of smoke and there was someone who helped us get out on the other side of the building.feedback

King Carl XVI Gustaf

We follow developments, but as of now our thoughts go to the victims and their families.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

One of Europe's most vibrant and colourful cities appears to have been struck by those wishing it – and our very way of life – harm.

An attack on any of our member states is an attack on us all.feedback

Donald Tusk - European Council

My heart is in Stockholm this afternoon. My thoughts are with the victims and their families and friends of today's terrible attack.feedback

Marten Luth

It is one of our delivery trucks. In connection with a delivery to a restaurant called Caliente, someone jumped into the truck and drove it away, while the driver was unloading his delivery.feedback

Sauli Niinisto

Every terror attack is to be equally condemned. But it touches us deeply when such an attack takes place in our Nordic neighborhood.feedback
