Bomb alert turns out to be false alarm

Downtown Oslo was paralyzed this morning for a short amount of time, after a suspect unattended bag was left near the Norwegian prime-minister’s office.



Though no buildings were evacuated buses were diverted from their regular routes, with police and emergency medical services put on alert in case the bag contained a bomb.

Bomb experts carefully inspected and handled the bag, but deemed the contents to be harmless.

The bag alert was given increased attention because of yesterday’s arrest by Norwegian Security Police of three suspected terrorists, who are believed to have connections with al-Qaeda.

The extremist faction was also supposedly involved in last year’s failed terrorist attacks on New York and Manchester.
