This is the latest attack after several attacks using public transportation in Europe. Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has asked functional forces to strengthen border security.

After the attack in Sweden, the police in major cities and airports of Norway have been equipped with weapons, while Finland has strengthened patrols in Helsinki.

The European Union on Friday expressed unity with Sweden. Head of the EU Commission (EC) Jean-Claude Juncker said any attack targeting an EU country means targeting all EU member countries. He said the Swedish government can expect support from the EC.
