Here’s what happened

Police in Norway detonated an explosive device in Oslo Saturday night. The device was left on busy street outside Groenland underground station in the centre of Oslo and a large area was cordoned off.  

Heavily armed police swept through the area to evacuate people from bars and restaurants in the capital.

 

Journalist Fredik Drevon who is based in Oslo wrote on twitter “I asked a police officer if police did a detonation. He said “Yes, we tried …”

A Norwegian police spokesman said: “The noise from the blast was louder than our explosives themselves would cause.”

A witness Malin Myrvold who was on the fourth floor of a near-by building saw the activity unfold and said: “Every restaurant was being closed. 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.”
