Breaking: Oslo Bombing?

Ho boy

An explosion knocks out windows in government buildings in downtown Oslo, news agencies reports. Injuries have been reported.

Update at 10:03 a.m. ET: Reuters reports at least 8 people injured in an explosion that knocked out most of the windows in a 17-story building where Prime Minister Jen Stoltenberg’s office is located. The nearby oil ministry is reported to be on fire.


UPDATE THE SECOND: Early reports are almost always chaotic and wrong, but this from the Grauniad is bad if true

Neil Perry in Oslo just sent me this worrying development. I’ll try to get more details:

A man disguised as a police officer began shooting where prime minister Jens Stoltenberg was attending a Labour party conference at Utoya, Stoltenberg has just confirmed.

He said there is a ‘critical and serious siuation’ where he is (but he is safe).

He was speaking on the phone to Norwegian TV station TV2.

    I just heard that the “Helpers of the Global Jihad” is taking credit. They seem to be in a snit over the publishing of THOSE cartoons.

    Presbys on the march again.

    Had to be the Amish, they’re getting pretty feisty. They should kick everyone of that “peaceful” religion out of the country aside from nuking them from space, it’s the only way, well maybe unleashing Thor.

    Wait, they’re not white and middle class? A fluke! A fluke I say!

    It’s sounding like he was white, middle classed, brat, and damned to Hell for all eternity for the horror of what he’s done, the bastard.
