Sweden has raised the alert at all its nuclear facilities after bomb sniffer dogs discovered an explosive device in the back of a truck near Stockholm’s Ringhals atomic power station. Police are investigating the incident.
Although the device lacked a detonator, officers have evacuated the area around the truck and are questioning the driver. Initial reports point to sabotage, with no immediate suspects.
Police spokesman Tommy Nyman said the driver was unaware of the explosives.
“An outsider has obviously placed them on the truck…we’re talking to the truck driver and are trying to map out her movements within the premises throughout the day,” Nyman said.
