SWEDEN -- A car belonging to a chief at the Uppsala police exploded in Täby just north of Stockholm, reports Aftonbladet.
- I can not answer on if there is any direct threat to this person, says Mats Eriksson, press spokesman of the Stockholm police.
Police were notified of explosions in the residential area of Vallatorp in Täby at half past twelve on Monday night.
The car was parked outside the police chief's residence. Police do not think it is a coincidence that it was the car of the chief of police that was hit.
Technicians and bomb experts have tonight examined the vehicle.
No one was injured in the explosion.
The police chief and his family have been given police protection.
So far there are no suspects.
- Each time a member of the judiciary or the Swedish police are subjected to threats or attacks, it is one too many, says National Police Chief Dan Eliasson in a statement.
According to the police's main safety officer, Emma Cronberg, threats and violence against the police have become more vile.
