Chișinău / Moldova.ORG/ -- A last-minute attempt in Norway, where seven people were dead and over 20 injured, was committed today, July 22, in the Norwegian capital center, near government buildings and institutions.
Police assumed that there could have been placed several bombs, which would create a real chaos.
The local press stated that "dozens" of people are receiving outpatient or inside medical institutions care.
Shortly after the explosion in downtown Oslo, a few strangers dressed in police uniforms, opened fire on a summer youth camp, not far from Oslo.
According to Norwegian television, an eyewitness saw more than 20 dead at the camp.
Police refused to comment on these reports, so far.
Police detachments, who are specialized in counter-terrorism operations, were sent to the youth camp.
It was also confirmed that all members of the government are in safety and safe.
Prime office windows were shattered, thankfully, the head of government was not in the room. Splinters, metal fragments and smoke spread to several hundred meters after the explosion.
The summer camp, organized by the Labour Party on the island near Oslo, was to be attended by the Norwegian Prime Minister, Jen Stoltenberg, also, reports BBC.
Prime Minister, in a phone call, for security reasons, declined to say where he was at the moment, but declared he felt good and was not exposed to danger, he also said it was too early to talk about a potential attack.
At one point, there was information about a second explosion that would have taken place, but it turned out to be false later, there was merely a single "huge explosion" which was heard in villages far from Oslo.
It is not known yet if it was a placed bomb or a car bomb, but there were reports of a charred shell of a car near the blast site.
The police immediately proceeded to evacuating people from the affected area. Fortunately, the attack occurred at a time when circulation was poor, at 15.26 local time, when many officials had gone home already.
In addition, Friday is holiday in Norway, many people went on holiday occasioned by the long weekend.
So far, the terrorist attack was not claimed.
Norway, a country considered peaceful, involved in mediating international conflicts, and a member of NATO, participates in the Libya campaign and the Afghanistan war.
There had been threats from the al-Qaeda leaders in the past, although, never materialized.
Experts say that the extent of the explosion shows that the today's attack, July 22, was not spontaneous, but a long planned one.
