Blast rocks Turkish cultural center in Stockholm
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.
Earlier in the day a deadly blast rocked the Turkish capital of Ankara, killing at least 28 people and wounding dozens, when a car bomb apparently targeting military personnel detonated near government buildings, including the country’s parliament and the armed forces' headquarters.
