Bloody Islamic terror has struck again — this time in Stockholm, Sweden, which President Donald Trump famously warned was having serious problems with migrants last month.
Still don’t think we need a travel ban?
A hijacked beer truck was turned into a deadly missile Friday by at least one radical Islamic terrorist — who escaped police custody and is feared to be on the loose.

Police have launched a nationwide manhunt for the suspect, and released his photo to the media.
The truck crashed into an upscale department store in central Stockholm, killing at least two people, according to Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who called the crash a terror attack.
Live television footage showed smoke coming out of the upscale Ahlens department store on the city’s pedestrian street Drottninggatan, the store the truck smashed into about 3 p.m.
People in the downtown area fled in panic. Authorities evacuated the city’s nearby Central Station, which links regional trains with the Swedish capital’s subway system. All trains to and from the main station were halted and two large shopping malls in the capital were shut down.
“Sweden has been attacked,” Lofven said in a nationally televised press conference. “This indicates that it is an act of terror.”
Broadcaster SVT said at least five people were killed in the attack while Swedish radio reported three dead, but police could not immediately confirm either report. The country’s intelligence agency said a large number of people were wounded in the crash.

“We stood inside a shoe store and heard something … and then people started to scream,” witness Jan Granroth told the Aftonbladet daily. “I looked out of the store and saw a big truck.”
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack and police at a later news conference said no one had been arrested so far, contradicting earlier Swedish media reports that one person was in custody.
“We have no contact with the person or persons who drove the truck,” Sweden’s top police chief, Dan Eliasson, told reporters.
“Right now, we have no one arrested,” said Jan Evensson of the Stockholm police, who urged people not to drive into central Stockholm.
The truck crash appeared to be the latest bloody Islamic terror attack in Europe using a vehicle.

Last month, a radical Muslim killer drove into a crowd on London’s Westminster Bridge, killing three people and injuring many others before stabbing a policeman to death. He was shot dead by police. A fourth person, a woman thrown into the Thames by the force of the car attack, died Thursday.
ISIS claimed responsibility for a truck attack that killed 86 people in Nice, France, in July during a Bastille Day festival last year and another truck attack that killed 12 people at a Christmas market in Berlin.
Most Islamic terror attacks over the last year have been committed by migrants.
EU Council President Donald Tusk said in a tweet Friday that “my heart is in Stockholm this afternoon. My thoughts are with the victims and their families and friends of today’s terrible attack.”

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said “one of Europe’s most vibrant and colorful cities appears to have been struck by those wishing it — and our very way of life — harm.”
Juncker also said “an attack on any of our (EU) member states is an attack on us all” and that Sweden can count on EU help.
Friday’s crash is near the site of a December 2010 attack in Stockholm in which Taimour Abdulwahab, an Islamic terrorist, detonated a suicide bomb, killing himself and injuring two others.
Abdulwahab had rigged a car with explosives in the hope the blast would drive people to Drottninggatan — the street hit Friday — where he would set off devices strapped to his chest and back. The car bomb never went off, and Abdulwahab died when one of his devices exploded among panicked Christmas shoppers.
