The death toll from the truck attack in Stockholm earlier this month rose to five on Friday after a woman died from her injuries in hospital, police said.

In a statement, police said that a woman of around 60, who had been treated in an hospital in southern Sweden, died on the morning of April 28.

A truck careened down a busy street in central Stockholm on April 7, mowing down shoppers before crashing into a department store.

Police are holding failed asylum-seeker Rakhmat Akilov over the attack.
