For those not aware, downtown Oslo, Norway, has been hit by a massive explosion. Reports are fuzzy at the moment, but all are reporting that the focus of the blast are the Prime Minster’s/governmental buildings. There were earlier reports of a second blast, although this now appears to have been damage caused by the initial blast, which was heard as far as 15 miles away. There are, however, now reports of larger areas of Oslo being evacuated by police saying there are more unexploded bombs.
One person has been confirmed dead by a credible source so far, although from pictures emerging, it’s likely the death toll will be far higher.
News agencies have been slow picking up on the details, but the BBC seem to be most well-informed, along with DougSanders, the European Bureau Chief for The Globe and Mail.
