On Friday the prosecution opened their case against a man arrested with explosives in a Stockholm shopping centre.

The 43-year-old was arrested in November 2014 and is charged with intent to cause public destruction, as well as drug offences.

According to the prosecutor the accused placed explosives in the shopping centre. This was 2kg dynamite, two detonators and a fuse, in the Liljeholmen Galleria in southern Stockholm.

A witness statement says the explosives were ready for use.

An explosion would have put many people’s lives in danger, and caused widespread property destruction, says the prosecution.

The prosecution also says they have security campera footage that supports their case, reports local radio P4 Stockholm.
