Security alert lifted at Oslo railway station


A security scare that sparked the evacuation of Oslo’s main railway station this morning has been lifted. Police say nothing suspicious was found.

Train and bus services were halted after the discovery of a suspect suitcase.

Norway is on high alert after Friday’s bombing and shooting incidents left 76 people dead. With the station cleared, the suitcase, apparently left on a bus bound for Oslo airport, was removed using a robot. It was found to be harmless.

At the same time, police said they were seeking a dangerous man, just out of jail, who identified with self-confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik.

Having issued the alert, police later said the man they were looking for had nothing to do with Breivik and that it was a routine mission.
