Teens Arrested After Bomb Found at Stockholm Subway Station

Swedish police apprehended a group of teenage boys after a bomb was discovered at Stockholm's central subway station last week, according to reports.

Authorities were alerted about a suspicious object at around 7 p.m. on May 10 at the T-Centralen metro hub in Sweden's capital city.

A cordon was immediately established and police began searching for suspects while technicians examined the item, which turned out to be an explosive device, Aftonbladet reports.

Four male suspects were detained later that night and brought in for questioning, police said.

After further investigation, two of the teens, aged 15 and 16, were arrested on Friday under suspicion of preparing to commit murder.

"According to the Swedish Tax Agency's population register, the 15-year-old was born in Thailand, but has been a Swedish citizen since 2016. His mother now lives with a Swedish man in Kungsängen north of Stockholm," Samnytt reports.

"The 16-year-old is also from Kungsängen and was born in Sweden, but has a father from Argentina and a mother from Peru. The 16-year-old has a troubled upbringing with a now deceased big brother who has been convicted of crime several times."

Authorities have indicated the suspects may have ties to criminal networks.

"We can not go into what those connections look like, but there are network connections," explained Stockholm Police spokesman Daniel Wikdahl.

Prosecutors now have until May 27 to decide whether or not to pursue further legal action against the suspects.

Major explosions and bombings have become commonplace in Sweden, as Infowars Europe has often reported.
