The day before, a 17-year-old Russian, suspected of planting a bomb in Oslo, was detained.

Norwegian special services will check the detainee, 17-year-old Russian citizen, for contact with a terrorist, who hit people in Stockholm, Svenska Dagbladet reports with reference to the statement of the service representative Annette Aamodt.

"We are conducting an investigation, which will make it clear whether there is any connection with the detainee in Stockholm," Aamodt said.

The day before, the 17-year-old Russian, suspected of planting a bomb, was detained in Oslo. The young man came to Norway in 2010. He is accused of illegal handling of explosives. He does not admit his guilt.

"He does not admit his guilt, does not agree with the police version that he planned an attack. He opposes the terrorist group Islamic State (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) and radical Islamism," said lawyer Ose Karine Sigmonne.

Previously, the Norwegian police defused a bomb in the center of Oslo. The explosive device was found at the entrance to one of the loaded metro stations.

Recall, on Friday, April 7, in Stockholm, the truck hit a crowd of people. Four people were killed and 15 others were injured. In the case of the terrorist attack, 39-year-old Uzbek citizen Rakhmat Akilov was detained.
