STOCKHOLM (AP) A car exploded Friday in a roundabout in the Swedish city of Goteborg, leaving several people seriously injured, police and rescue officials said.

Police said there were four or five people in the car when it exploded Friday afternoon in the district of Torslanda. The local rescue service could only say there were multiple injuries and possible fatalities.

The cause of the blast was not immediately clear.

Rescue spokesman Bosse Andersson said the car exploded in a roundabout near a fire station. When rescuers from the fire station arrived at the scene they found the car "severely demolished," he said.

4. Jesus, that is scary

Sweden is a pretty safe place. I visited there 14 years ago and in fact Goteborg is where I flew into. It's too early to say for sure, but given it was a "strong blast" it seems like that would lean toward something being done to the car. Positive thoughts to the victims and their families in Sweden.

5. 4 dead; could be gang related

Four people, including a young girl, have been killed after a car exploded in the Swedish city of Gothenburg.
...
One of the victims was a well-known criminal gang leader in the city, according to local news reports.

Gangs in Gothenburg have been involved in tit-for-tat revenge killings in recent years.
...
Robert Karlsson, head of the region's criminal investigation unit, said it was too early to say if the explosion was linked to gangland violence.
