Two explosions in central Stockholm on Saturday were a "terrorist" attack, Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt said in a message sent from his Twitter account.

Earlier, an apparent suicide attacker blew himself up in central Stockholm, local media reported. Unconfirmed reports said police found multiple explosive charges on the man, who was killed in the explosion Saturday.

The Aftonbladet newspaper said the man apparently had the explosives in a backpack.

The first car explosion occurred at the intersection of Drottninggatan and Olof Palmes Gata roads and the second happened not long after in the nearby Bryggergatan, where the man's body was also discovered.
