From the UK Express:
Huge swathes of road are blocked off after the discovery of a potentially explosive device, police in Oslo told newspaper VG.
Spokesman Svein Arild Jørundland revealed the bomb squad was on the way after officers found a box, around 30cm square, near the bridge in Grønlandsleiret.
He said: “It is of such a size that we do not think it has a great damage potential, but we will have to examine it.
“We have put adequate barriers, so that public safety is safeguarded.”
Officers have cordoned off the scene and wtnesses have reported multiple police cars and ambulances on site.
People are being asked to remain behind the cordon and evacuate the normally busy shopping district following the discovery.
Operations manager Marita Aune said a “bomb-like object” had been found and police have “cordoned off a large area”.
It’s being reported that one person is in custody.
