Explosion risk shuts Oslo schools / News / The Foreigner

The Foreigner Explosion risk shuts Oslo schools. Officials closed many Oslo schools today following the discovery of potentially dangerous fire extinguishers. Faulty valves in the CO2 extinguishers installed between 2006 and 2011 mean the equipment could detonate if touched, and have given authorities little choice but to shut many schools, or alter teaching plans.   According to NTB, there have been no incidents so far, and only some rooms in certain schools that are still open have the equipment. Students were not sent home.
