I edited the title. It didn't seem right, since so much happened.

Quote by Trowzaa
Here's the BBC article for it.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14252515



A carbomb just exploded close to the governments building (or whatever I should call it in English .. It's where the top politicians work.)

Witnesses says the first floor is almost completely gone, and all glass windows in the area area were destroyed.
There are people on the streets, bleeding, and probably some dead too.


Thoughts? Any Norwegians here?

Wow. Was it terrorists? Didn't think they did much in Norway..or was it just Norwegian criminals? Also inb4 all the gr1m norway puns.

It is confirmed now that it was terrorists.

Apparently, more bombs, just went off. I don't know if that's true though, I heard it from a few people that live down in Oslo.

And terrorists have recently been more active towards Norway. I know we had a huge disagreement with some group, but I don't know much about it.

It's probably something to do with our immigrant politics.


EDIT: The police is currently blocking off the whole area, and they're heavily armed. I'm talking machineguns and shit

Even the military arrived.

It is terrible though.
I have relatives and friends that live in Oslo, and I haven't been able to contact everyone yet.

Was watching News 24 when this happened. Sounds sick, but I like watching stuff like this unfold. It's a terrible thing to happen though, I hope there have been no serious injuries or any fatalities.

I commend whoever can work Norway and terrorists into a pun. Is there any idea what group it was?

Source?

I live in Oslo... It was pretty massive, everyone within like 8-9 km heard a bang, including me... I thought it was thunder.

There are confirmed deaths, and there are lots of people in the streets, bleeding. The paramedics are doing what they can, though.

Right now, I can't remember the source ..
I think it was probably T-A or VG. Not sure though.


And yeah, apparently you're not the only one who tought that.

The Norwegian media have confirmed that there are deaths. They're updating like every 5. minute.

From VG:
Utenfor Finansdepartementet satt flere personer fullstendig tildekket i blod. Minst ett lik lå tildekket av et blodig teppe.

That's terrible news, I hope the people in Oslo are ok and that the number of casualties is minimal.

If you commit an act such as this, inciting terror and causing injury to the masses especially for a political purpose, you are a terrorist regardless of age, sex, race or religion.
And for those in this thread that are gonna say it might not have been a political move, the explosion took place outside a government building. If that's not a political statement, **** knows what is.


Again, my thoughts are with all those affected by this incident.

Sheesh... I really hope they're alright.

This whole thing just sounds so bizarre. Never would've thought Norway of all places could get this kind of treatment from terrorists.

You're correct, I wasn't thinking right because of the shock. What I meant was if it was norwegians or middle-eastern terrorists making some type of statement. Like a norwegian 9/11 or something.

I'd give you a thumbs up, but that would probably be bad taste.
My guess is homegrown terrorists, similar to the London 7/7 bombings and/or Northern Ireland. (different religious groups but all nationals to that particular country)

I don't think it's that big, really.
I mean, it's not like things like this happen often here, this is a huge deal! But calling it a Norwegian 9/11 .. Not so much.


No matter who did it, immigrant politics will be alot more serious now. We're a racist country.


EDIT: More people are confirmed dead now. People inside the bombed building.


The police, military, and media are saying the whole area looks like a warzone.

Geez, that's pretty crazy. I'm actually going to call one of my friends see if she's alright ^^

This seriously sucks though, i mean - why Norway of all places? I get that their immigration laws are getting stricter, but seriously?

This sucks. They are suspecting terrorists, but no proofs of who did it.

I hardly thing it is regarding muslims and immigration laws. There might be a link between Norway's contribution to Lybia. Perhaps some of Gaddhafi's puppets? I honestly don't know.

EDIT: I hope this will not be a problem for the common Middle Easterner in Norway like 9/11.

Oh, then I guess I misunderstood.
The way things have been here, though, makes pretty much everyone blame immigrants at once. I wouldn't be surprised if it was, but we can't blame anyone yet.

But again, it wouldn't surprise me.

Actually, I think this will have a major effect on immigration politics. The laws are there for a reason, though.

No one can honestly say they do more good than bad?

According to the state broadcasters, Oslo is in a state of NRK.


Seriously though, I've got a Norwegian friend and I hope they're okay.
Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?
