Oslo, Norway experienced an explosion which caused damage to the government building and killed one citizen.
There have been several injuries, but the Christian Science Monitor reports that the Prime Minister has not been harmed:
” “Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg is safe, government spokeswoman Camilla Ryste told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on the cause of the blast
Witness Ole Tommy Pedersen was standing at a bus stop about 100 meters (yards) from the high-rise at around 3:30 p.m. (1330 GMT) when he saw the blast shatter almost all windows of the 20-floor highrise. He said a cloud of smoke is billowing from the bottom floors.”
CNN International was able to interview a witness of the event, Nick Soubiea, a Swedish-American tourist. He tells CNN:
” “It was almost in slow motion, like a big wave that almost knocked us off our chairs,” he said. “It was extremely frightening.”
He said the streets were crowded with people trying to get away from the center of the city. “There are people running down the streets, people crying, everyone’s on their cell phones calling home,” he said.”
A Youtube video claims that this was a terrorist attack:
