Man seriously injured following explosion at Stockholm metro station

The man sustained fatal injuries after he picked up an object, a police spokesman said.

A man and a woman were injured near a Stockholm subway station Sunday after the man picked up an unidentified object from the ground that detonated in his hand, Swedish police said.

Stockholm police told the Swedish news agency TT that the injured were a 60-year old man and a 45-year-old woman.

Tabloids Aftonbladet and Expressen reported that the blast was thought to have been caused by a hand grenade, but police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson declined to confirm the reports.

Police also said the man died at the hospital and that the woman was also taken to the hospital and had wounds on her face and both legs.

Police checked in and around the station after the blast to make sure there were no other explosive devices.

The three biggest cities in Sweden, Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo, have seen several violent gang-related incidents in the past few years.

According to Alvarsjo, hand grenades are increasingly used by criminal networks in Sweden.
