Man dies in explosion outside Stockholm subway

Swedish national broadcaster SVT says a man has died after he picked up an unidentified object from the ground near a subway station in Stockholm that detonated in his hand.

Swedish police could not immediately confirm the death.

Stockholm region police spokesman Sven-Erik Olsson says the explosion took place Sunday morning just outside the Varby Gard subway station in Huddinge — a residential district in greater Stockholm. He says a woman with the man received minor wounds to her face and both legs from the blast.

Police are examining the object.
