On Friday the police discovered what resembled a car bomb beneath a car in Västerås. On Saturday they destroyed it in a controlled explosion, according to Dagens Nyheter on Saturday.

Unfortunately it is now impossible to establish whether the "bomb" was fake or real.

Nevertheless, two men have been charged with attempted murder, confirmed Västerås police.

They are alleged to have connections with the owner of the car and "it appears they may have been doing some business together", said the police.
