Explosion in Stockholm kills 1, injures 1

One person was killed and another injured in Stockholm, Sweden, on Sunday after one of the victims picked up an unidentified item on the ground near a metro station. One outlet reported the explosive object was a hand grenade, but authorities have not confirmed that story.

Swedish police said the situation has "nothing to do with terrorism" and "we will have to wait for the technical investigation" to understand what happened. The man who picked up the object was hospitalized with injuries that soon proved fatal, while the other victim, a woman, was less gravely harmed.
