An Explosion has Damaged Buildings in Downtown Oslo; Offices are Being Evacuated

A loud explosion has shattered windows and led to evacuations of office buildings near the government headquarters in downtown Oslo.

An AP reporter says newspaper offices in the area are also damaged and smoke is drifting in the streets. He saw a young man with a bleeding leg being helped away from the area. It wasn’t immediately clear whether there were other injuries or exactly where the explosion happened.
