Residual disruptions to rail services are to be expected at Malmö central station on Monday evening (local time), June 10, after a security incident prompted its evacuation. Security forces shot and wounded a man who exhibited "threatening behavior" around 10:00. The suspect reportedly claimed to be carrying an explosive device and weapons; it was not immediately confirmed if the suspect was, in fact, armed. Police subsequently arrested the man and bomb squad technicians conducted a sweep of the station. Officials have not ruled out a terror motive. Police reinforcements will remain deployed in central Malmö - including at public places and transportation hubs - over the coming days.
A heightened security presence and residual transportation disruptions are to be expected in Malmö over the coming hours.
Individuals in Malmö are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence and residual rail delays, cancelations, and congestion, and maintain a flexible itinerary.
