Explosion in Oslo

by

Explosions rock the government district of Oslo.  Some reports at the guardian (click the picture).  There’s talk of several explosions, an “unexploded package” and “a man disguised as a police officer” shooting at the prime minister. edit: not at the prime minister.

“Suddenly, we heard lots of shooting. People had to run and hide. We have been told to get off the island.”

A man disguised as a police officer began shooting where prime minister Jens Stoltenberg was attending a Labour party conference at Utoya, Stoltenberg has just confirmed.

He said there is a ‘critical and serious situation’ where he is (but he is safe).

He was speaking on the phone to Norwegian TV station TV2.There has been one or several powerful explosions in the government district in Oslo. So far, police cannot say anything about the scope of the damage, aside from that there’s been one or several explosions.
