The death toll from a truck attack in April in Sweden’s capital rose on Friday after a woman in her 60s passed away, police said.
“A woman of around 60, who was being treated in an hospital in southern Sweden for injuries she received in connection with the terror attack on Drottninggatan, died on the morning of April 28,” Swedish police said in a statement.
A further 14 people were injured in the April 7 attack when a hijacked truck plowed through a busy pedestrian shopping area in Stockholm.
Police arrested a second suspect on Monday, who was then released on Wednesday.
Akilov’s Swedish residency application was rejected in June last year.
After receiving a deportation order, he went underground, but police said there was nothing to indicate that he might plan an attack.
Swedish authorities have not yet released a motive for the attack and no extremist group has claimed responsibility.
The Stockholm attack was the fourth time in the past 12 months that a vehicle has been used to target a crowd of civilians in Europe.
It follows the deadly attacks in London, Berlin and Nice.
