Savages must be put down. People who will kill ever one who does not submit to Sharia should not be allowed in the civilized world.

Morning Molly !

I wonder who the arrested person could be an Amish? Melkite? Baptist? Catholic? Enquiring minds want to know.

Such joy diversity and refugees have brought to Sweden. Nothing to see there silly President Trump. I wonder if when the people with their heads in the sand will wake up before their very heads are cut off about the reality of Islam.

Swedish police say they cannot say how many people were killed or injured when a truck ran into a crowd in downtown Stockholm, and they have not found the driver.

"We have no contact with the person or persons who drove the truck," Sweden's top police chief, Dan Eliasson, told a news conference.

"Right now we have no one arrested," said Jan Evensson of the Stockholm police who urged people not to drive into central Stockholm.

Norway police find 'bomb-like' device, arrest suspect
By Associated Press, Top News | April 8, 2017, 6:45PM ET


STAVANGER, Norway (AP) — Police in the Norwegian capital of Oslo cordoned off large section of a busy commercial street Saturday night after finding what they describe as a "bomb-like" device.

The official police Twitter account said one man has been arrested and bomb disposal experts are on the scene.

Police swept through the area to remove people from bars and restaurants.

"Every restaurant was being closed," said 23-year-old Malin Myrvold, who witnessed the scene from a fourth-story window. "You could see cops in heavy armor going in every store and restaurant.

"We were trying to see what was going on. The police were screaming at us to get back inside and stay where we were," she added by telephone

Norway was put on high alert after neighboring Sweden suffered a truck attack in the capital Thursday that killed four people and injured 15.

This journalist is there and heard the controlled detonation with robot. He's posted lots of photos of downtown. The streets look like they are lined with restaurants and bars. Really pretty, clean. How I remember Germany.

Fredrik Drevon@FredrikDrevon
I asked a police officer if police did a detonation. He said "Yes, we tried ..."

Snap, Molly... more on controled detonation....

Oslo police detonate 'bomb-like device'
9 Apr 2017 - 9:34am

Norwegian police have set off a controlled explosion of a "bomb-like device" found in central Oslo and a suspect is in custody.

A Reuters reporter described a loud bang shortly after the arrival of Oslo's bomb squad on Saturday night.

"The noise from the blast was louder than our explosives themselves would cause," a police spokesman said, while adding that further investigation would be conducted at the scene.

The device had appeared to be capable of causing only a limited amount of damage, the police said earlier.

Police declined to give information about the suspect.

Oslo's Groenland area, a multi-ethnic neighbourhood that is home to popular bars and restaurants as well as several mosques, is also where the city's main police station is located, less than a kilometre away from where the device was found.

In neighbouring Sweden, a truck on Friday ploughed into crowds in Stockholm, killing four people and wounding 15 in what police said was an apparent terror attack.

In 2011, right-wing extremist Anders Behring Breivik set off a car bomb in Oslo that killed eight people and destroyed Norway's government headquarters, before going on a shooting rampage that killed 69 people at nearby Utoeya island.

Yeah, I think it is close enough also. Every Norway article mentions Stockholm.

I know right, with the fire & all. I need to look up the guy. I kept wondering, if the truck was stolen, why wasn't it reported and located prior to this happening? But the driver was truck-jacked only a short distance away.
