Nobody was hurt in the attack at the university, which is situated on a green field campus in the north-eastern outskirts of Stockholm.

Police are to carry out a full investigation of the scene on Tuesday morning. Nobody has so far been arrested. It has not been revealed whether the robbers made away with anything.
