STOCKHOLM (AFP) - One person died and two were injured on Saturday in two almost simultaneous explosions in central Stockholm, police and emergency services said. Officers said they did not know the precise cause of the blasts or if they were linked. One occurred in a car about 200 metres from the other. The first blast in the car left two people in need of hospital treatment for minor injuries, said emergency services spokesman Bengt Norberg. A second alert was received two minutes later and one person was found dead at the scene of this second blast which took place in the street, he added. I cannot confirm that the death is linked to the explosion of the car but I cannot deny it either, police spokeswoman Petra Sjolandero said. She added that the car caught fire following a series of explosions which could have been from gas canisters.
