Stavanger(Norway), Apr 9 (AP) Police in the Norwegian capital of Oslo cordoned off large section of a busy commercial street after finding what they describe as a “bomb-like” device.
The official police Twitter account said one man has been arrested and bomb disposal experts are on the scene. Police swept through the area last night to remove people from bars and restaurants.
“Every restaurant was being closed,” said 23-year-old Malin Myrvold, who witnessed the scene from a fourth-story window. “You could see cops in heavy armour going in every store and restaurant.
“We were trying to see what was going on. The police were screaming at us to get back inside and stay where we were,” she added by telephone Norway was put on high alert after neighbouring Sweden suffered a truck attack in the capital Thursday that killed four people and injured 15. (AP) ARK
