Blast rocks Turkish cultural center in Stockholm
An explosion has severely damaged a Turkish cultural center in Sweden, blowing out all of the windows of its headquarters, located in a Stockholm suburb, according to local media. Police said that no one was injured in the incident.

While all the facility’s windows seem to be blown out, there were no immediate reports of any injuries from the incident, Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports.

"No one was inside. No one was injured. It had been locked since earlier in the evening," a police spokesman said, according to Reuters.

The incident happened around 9:30pm GMT, in the basement of a building in Fittja, in southwest Stockholm, where the headquarters of a Turkish cultural association is located. Police, as well as a fire brigade and an ambulance were sent to the scene.

Authorities are investigating the incident, admitting that no one has been arrested and there are currently no suspects.
