SWEDEN’S prime minister vowed his country would never go back to the days of mass immigration after it emerged the Stockholm attacker was a failed asylum seeker.
During 2015 alone, Sweden received more than 160,000 asylum applications, resulting in the country closing its internal borders in an attempt to stagger the levels of migration into the country.
And more than 3,000 migrants are still living illegally in the Swedish capital alone.
But now Stefan Löfven has pledged to change Sweden’s liberal attitudes to immigration, and insisted the massive influx would never be allowed to happen again.
It comes after migrant Rakhmat Akilov from Uzbekistan drove a stolen 30-tonne truck into pedestrians at a busy department store in Stockholm on Friday.
Four were killed, including Britton and father-of-two Chris Bevinton, and 15 injured in the harrowing attack, which showed clear similarities to the London terror attack last month.
Akilov is believed to have carried out a reconnaissance of his route just days earlier.
