YES, YET ANOTHER TRUCK ATTACK…This is now the weapon of choice for ISIS but…
It’s too early to say if this was ISIS but it has clear markings of terror.
Two more clues that it’s terror:
Shots were heard and the driver, who was said by witnesses to be wearing a balaclava (a black mask-like covering for the entire face), is thought to have been arrested. There were also reports of shots at a second incident.
FIVE people have died after a large truck plowed through crowds in a busy shopping district in Stockholm, Sweden.

WITNESSES DESCRIBE THE TERROR:
‘We stood inside a shoe store and people started screaming.
‘So I looked out of the store and I saw a huge truck slam into the wall opposite.’
Mr Granroth managed to escape after running through an emergency exit.
Another witness, called Dimitris, described the panic and saw ‘at least’ two people being run over.
He said: I went to the main street when a big truck came out of nowhere. I could not see if anyone was driving it but it got out of control.
‘I saw at least two being run over – I ran as fast as I could.’
A woman, called Anna, witnessed the incident and described seeing ‘hundreds of people running for their lives’.
She said: ‘I turned and ran after seeing hundreds of people running, they ran for their lives.’
Shocking video footage showed hundreds of terrified shoppers sprint for their lives after the truck rammed into pedestrians.
Just moments after the suspected terrorist incident, armed police wearing gas masks quickly rushed to the scene and shut off the busy road in the centre of the capital.
Maria Nathalie was on the top floor of the store when the fire alarm was triggered.
Speaking on the phone, she told NBC: ‘People started running down the stairs when the fire alarm started.
‘When we came down to the bottom of the building all we could see was a lot of smoke.’
This comes after trucks were used in terror attacks in Nice and Berlin last year. A car was also used to kill pedestrians in the Westminster Bridge two weeks ago which killed five people.
