Explosion Strikes Swedish Shopping Mall

A blast has rocked a shopping center in central Stockholm. There are no reports of casualties at this time, and the cause for the explosion has not been determined.

The incident occurred at Mood Galleria in the Swedish capital, and witnesses report hearing a blast and seeing a cloud of smoke.

"We have a damaged facade and a ruptured car window but we are not aware of any injuries to people," said police spokeswoman Carina Skagerlind. "Obviously something has exploded but it doens't appear to be major damage."

Police are on the scene.

Following the Paris attacks last year, Sweden raised its threat level to its second-highest.

Two bombs also exploded in central Stockholm before Christmas in 2010.
