Stockholm: The Stockholm truck attack suspect has confessed to deliberately driving the stolen vehicle into crowds in the Swedish capital, his lawyer said on Tuesday.

During a court hearing here, 39-year-old Uzbek Rakhmat Akilov admitted to committing a "terrorist crime" last week in which four people were killed and 15 others were injured, reported BBC.

Johan Eriksson, defending Akilov, told the court: "His position is that he admits to a terrorist crime and accepts. Therefore, he will be detained."

Two Swedes, one Belgian and a Briton were the victims of the last Friday attack.

Nine people remained hospitalised, two of them in serious condition.

The truck driven by Akilov had crashed into the front of Ahlens department store on Drottninggatan (Queen Street), one of the city's main pedestrian thoroughfares.
