Norway police neutralize explosive device, arrest suspect

Norwegian police detonated a "bomb-like device" left on a busy commercial street in the center of Oslo on Saturday, according to reports.

Four people were killed when a hijacked truck ploughed through a crowd of shoppers in central Stockholm yesterday, killing four and injuring 15.

The device turned out to be a "primitive explosive device" with the capacity to cause only "limited" damage, said another PST official, Signe Alling.

Police declined to give information about the suspect. "You could see cops in heavy armor going in every store and restaurant".

Officers evacuated late-night bars and restaurants in the Norwegian capital as bomb disposal experts rushed to the scene.

Following a court hearing on Monday, authorities in Oslo made a decision to extend the teenager's detention, having accused him of illegal possession of explosive materials, Norway's state NRK broadcaster reported.
