Stockholm: The Swedish police on Friday released a picture of a suspect captured on video surveillance cameras near the Drottninggatan department store where the "terrorist attack" took place.

"We do not have contact with the driver," national police chief Dan Eliasson told reporters, as another police officer showed a picture of a man wearing a white sweater and dark hoodie under a military green jacket, with dark stubble on his face.

On Friday, Swedish police said they are beginning a "preliminary investigation into suspected terrorist crimes" after a deadly truck crash in Stockholm.

The head of Sweden's security agency, Anders Thornberg, said agents are "conducting intensive intelligence work to identify the person or persons behind the attack."

Swedish police said they cannot say how many people were killed or injured when a truck ran into a crowd in downtown Stockholm, and they have not found the driver and and no one has been detained in the case so far.

"Right now we have no one arrested," said Jan Evensson of the Stockholm police who urged people not to drive into central Stockholm.

Sweden's security agency boss Anders Thornberg said the SAPO agency was working with the ordinary police in the case, adding "we worked on a similar sceanario last week.
