‘Ter­ror­ist must be jailed for life’


A Swedish pros­e­cu­tor has de­manded a life sen­tence for an Uzbek man who con­fessed to ram­ming a stolen lorry into a crowd in Stock­holm last year. The in­ci­dent killed five peo­ple and injured 14.

Hans Ihrman said: “Any­thing but life is ex­cluded. (Rak­mat) Ak­ilov is a se­cu­rity risk to so­ci­ety.” Ak­ilov, 40, said he wanted to pun­ish Swe­den for join­ing a coali­tion against the Is­lamic State group.
