Swedish judge extends detention for main suspect in Stockholm truck attack

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish court remanded Rakhmat Akilov in custody on Tuesday, allowing police to detain in prison the man they suspect was the driver of the truck that killed four and injured 15 in Stockholm.

The lawyer representing the 39 year-old said earlier his client had admitted committing a terrorist crime.
