Cause of blast on roundabout in Gothenburg is unclear, but police open criminal investigation

Four people, including a young girl, have been killed after a car exploded on a roundabout in Sweden’s second city of Gothenburg, police say.

The cause of Friday’s explosion was unclear, but police said they had started a criminal investigation.

The victims’ ages and identities were not given.
