A “dangerous object” found outside the Israeli embassy in Stockholm has been destroyed, Swedish police say.

Local reports said the incident triggered a major response, with a wide area cordoned off around the embassy to protect the public.

Police told the BBC they could not give further details on the object. They said no-one had been injured.

The Israeli ambassador to Sweden said there had been an “attempted attack” on the embassy and its employees.

“We will not be intimidated by terror,” Ziv Nevo Kulman posted on X. He thanked the Swedish authorities for their “swift action”.

Officers were called at about 13:10 local time (12:10 GMT), according to broadcaster TV4.

The object was later destroyed by bomb disposal experts, TV4 added – reporting a “bang” at the scene.
