A branch of the Handelsbanken bank in the Stockholm suburb of Farsta was evacuated on Friday afternoon after a bomb threat during an attempted robbery. It later emerged that a suspect package left by the robber contained no explosive.
Several hours earlier, a man was inside at Forex Bank Klarabergsgatan in central Stockholm. He behaved threateningly and left a package behind. It could not be ruled out that it contained no explosive as the office and the adjacent shops were evacuated and traffic in parts of Klarabergsgatan turned off. After the bomb technician looked at the package, it was deemed safe and the cordon was lifted.
