Police said Akilov had gone underground after his application for Swedish residency. Police said he had been ordered to leave Sweden in December because his request for a residence permit was rejected six months earlier.

Police would not confirm whether he had confessed, but Mr Eliasson said investigators were sure they had the truck driver, based on "discussions we've had with him". The head of the National Police, Dan Eliasson, said that the suspect had been known to police.

Some 20,000 people gathered on Sergels Torg plaza on Sunday.

"It is hard to return people to some countries (which) will not either accept the return of their own citizens or, if we return them by force, they will be subject maybe to punishment in those countries".

The prosecutor's office said Tuesday that it will revoke the arrest of a second man police had detained Sunday because they suspected he was involved in the case.
