OSLO, July 22 A huge explosion damaged
government buildings in central Oslo on Friday including Prime
Minister Jens Stoltenberg's office, injuring several people, a
Reuters witness said.
The blast blew out most windows on the 17-storey building
housing Stoltenberg's office, as well as nearby ministries
including the oil ministry, which was on fire.
Reuters correspondent Walter Gibbs said he counted at least
eight injured people. The cause of the blast was unknown but the
tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building. Police and
fire officials declined comment on the cause.
