US 'training bomb' triggers security scare in Oslo

Text size Aa Aa

Part of central Oslo was evacuated and special forces sent in after a fake bomb was left on a US embassy car by mistake.

The device which had been used for a training exercise triggered a security alert at a routine check.

Buildings were evacuated and metro lines closed.

Last year Norwegian police were accused of reacting too slowly to the city centre bomb detonated by gunman Anders Behring Breivik.
