Sweden : One injured in a bus explosion in Stockholm

A bus driver was injured as an out-of-service bus exploded in Stockholm on Sunday, bursting into flames and spreading dark smoke across the city.

No passengers were on the bus, the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported, but the driver was taken to a hospital.

Emergency services received calls about the crash at Klara Tunnel in central Stockholm about 11:25 a.m. local time.

A witness, Björn Wallentin, told Aftonbladet: “I heard a big explosion and then several smaller ones. It sounded like the scaffolding of a building falling down. I thought it was a terror attack.”

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
