>> The main suspect in Stockholm's truck attack, admitting to committing a terrorist crime. Rakhmat Akilov appearing in court on Tuesday.>> So the only thing I'm going to say is that he's pleading guilty.>> A judge remanding Akilov in custody. On Friday he's alleged to have driven a hijacked beer delivery truck down a busy shopping street before crashing into a department store.
The rampage killing 4 people and injuring 15 others. Reuters Chief Correspondent in Sweden, Niklas Pollard, says there's still a huge sense of shock amongst Swedes, and for migrants that's amplified.>> But there's also a fear for the future. What it will mean for attitudes against the migrants and asylum seekers coming into the country, and what it will mean for those that we talked to that had open asylum cases.
What it will mean for their chances to stay in the country.>> Akilov was arrested just hours after the attack. The Uzbek man already wanted for failing to comply with a deportation order. Security services say he had expressed sympathies with extremist organizations, among them, Islamic State, but hadn't been viewed as a militant threat.
The attack has seen an outpouring of grief in the Nordic nation. But there is also fear of a backlash.>> I think there are very real concerns both for a possible violent backlash. The security police has said that it is committing resources to track especially white power circles.
And say that they have picked up talk of revenge for the attack, and that's obviously something they're taking very seriously.>> The political repercussions remain to be seen. For now, politicians are taking a defiance stance, saying Sweden will remain an open tolerance society.
