A shocked Sweden was to hold a minute of silence Monday to honor the victims of last week's truck attack by a Uzbek man whom police believe was a extremist sympathizer.The far-right Sweden Democratic party, which until now has refrained from comment on the attack, Monday blasted the authorities' failure to deport the suspect as a "scandal".Sweden, a country of 10 million people, took in 244,000 asylum seekers in 2014 and 2015, the highest per capita number in Europe."I mowed down the infidels," he said, according to Aftonbladet Monday, citing unidentified sources close to the investigation.The suspect reportedly said he had received an "order" directly from ISIS to carry out the attack.Police confirmed the suspect had applied for a permanent residency permit in 2014, which the Migration Agency rejected in June 2016 .
