Man Dies In Stockholm Blast; Police See No Terrorism Link

Daily newspaper Aftonbladet said it was thought to have been a hand grenade.

"These two people cycled past the object and stopped to see what was on the ground".

But police haven't confirmed the exact nature of the explosive device.

"Nothing indicates that the (injured) couple were targeted", said Olsson, adding there was nothing to suggest an act of terrorism.

Mr Alvarsjo said Swedish police have "unfortunately" noticed a rise in the use of hand grenades by criminal groups.

Raiders to announce Gruden hiring next Tuesday
Gruden holds an all-time mark of 95-81 over 11 seasons with the Raiders and the Bucs and is 5-4 in the playoffs. The Oakland Raiders never really recovered from the decision to trade Jon Gruden to Tampa Bay 16 years ago.

The man, in his 60s, was taken to hospital but later died, while his companion, a woman in her mid-40s, received minor wounds to her face and both legs, Mr Olsson said.

A man has died and a woman been injured after an explosion outside a metro station in Stockholm.

Officials say the blast is not believed to be terror-related. "I don't dare imagine what would have happened if one or several children had found the hand grenade".

Police patrols will remain in the area throughout Sunday night and Monday, with the municipality offering crisis counseling to local residents.
