USA TODAY, 8 April 2017
At least four people were killed Friday when a large beer truck slammed into an upscale department store in a busy Stockholm pedestrian mall in what Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven called an apparent “terror attack.”
The incident is just the latest in a string of deadly terror attacks that have occurred in Europe over the past year.
Here’s a look at some of the most recent terror attacks in Europe:
In London, a sole attacker killed five people, including a police officer, and injured at least 50 others in two apparent terror assaults near Britain’s Parliament. Khalid Masood rammed his car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before fatally stabbing the policeman outside Parliament.
In Berlin, 12 people were killed and dozens injured after a truck attack on a popular street Christmas market. Anis Amri, a failed Tunisian asylum seeker suspected of carrying out the attack, was shot dead by Italian police four days after the attack on Dec. 19.
A 16-year-old boy was stabbed multiple times in Hamburg, Germany, by an assailant that was described as Middle Eastern. He later died from his injuries. ISIS took responsibility for the attack, though German officials could not confirm the authenticity of the claims at the time, Fox News reported.
Two men armed with knives killed an elderly priest and injured three others after seizing hostages at a Catholic church in Normandy, France. ISIS claimed responsibility. Both attackers were shot dead by French police as they attempted to leave the church.
In Nice, France, 86 people were killed after a large truck barreled into a thick crowd of revelers watching fireworks Bastille Day. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
In Istanbul, Turkey, 45 people were killed and approximately 240 wounded in an attack at the Ataturk International Airport.
A police officer and his partner were killed in a Paris suburb by Larossi Abballa, a man who was later killed by police. Abballa had pledged allegiance to ISIS.
In Brussels, Belgium, 32 people were killed and hundreds wounded in suicide bomb attacks. Two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the airport’s departure hall during a peak travel period, and an hour later, a bomb was ignited in a train at a busy metro station, killing 16 more people. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attacks.
In Istanbul, Turkey, five people, including two Americans, were killed in a suicide bombing. At least thirty-six people wounded, according to the health ministry.
