Sweden: 2 cars blown up in separate bombings – “We were really scared”

Last night two separate explosions took place in Sweden, with cars being blown up in Gothenburg and near Stockholm.

At 01:24 police were notified about a car explosion at a parking lot belonging to the Volvo factory in Torslanda in Gothenburg. A couple of other cars nearby were also damaged in the explosion.

Göteborgs Posten reports that police are looking for a silver car in connection with the attack. According to the newspaper, security footage shows a man getting out of the silver car and placing an object by the car that later blew up.

The Torslanda factory is one of the largest production facilities for Volvo cars.

That is not all however, as only a few hours later there was another bombing in Sweden.

A powerful explosion was heard in Södertälje, not far from Stockholm. Photos from the scene show car parts scattered on the street.

“As I understand it, the car was in pieces, it was no small explosion. It was a car that had an explosive device inside or underneath it, it was a powerful explosion. Police were worried for secondary explosions, so the nearby houses had to stay inside” said Roger Magnusson, operative chief at Södertörns Fire Prevention Association.

A witness tells Länstidningen Södertälje that the explosion was so powerful that the chandelier broke.

“We were really scared” the witness told the newspaper.

Police report that they will have resources on the ground for security in the area.

Last year saw a record number of 257 bomb attacks in Sweden, a 60% increase compared with 2018.

Since 2017 we have seen around 630 explosions take place in Sweden. This is unique for a country that is not at war.
