Two cars exploded at the downtown of Stockholm on Saturday, killing one person and injuring two others.

The first explosion happened near the Queens street, one of the busiest shopping streets in the city, and the second car exploded on an other street only 200 meters away several minutes later, the local police said.

One man was killed and the other two persons suffered with minor injuries in the explosions, according to the police.

Petra Sjoelander, a spokeswoman from the police, said that they don't know if the two explosions were linked and what caused the explosions.

A police bomb team has been sent to the site, she added.
