Kjell Magne Bondevik’s neighbours have until now characterized their neighbourhood at Kolbotn as “Norway’s safest” because of the extensive police patrolling, but they got a big scare Friday when heavy armed police arrived at the prime minister’s house. The police have received word of a possible bomb threat.
Bondevik has stated that he considers moving, and Sylvi Graham, the mayor in Oppegård, said it may be a good idea.
“It may not be a bad solution,” she said to TV 2 Nettavisen. “It unfortunately looks like the world has changed so it is not safe to have a prime minister living so close to his neighbours and a child care centre.”
Large armed troops arrived at the housing complex in the centre of Kolbotn after neighbours observed a man with a strange package under his arm. The police contained the area, and closed off a larger wooded area.
Children at the school close by were kept in doors and there was also a search of the child care facility next to the prime ministers house.
Nothing was found, and the man seems like he has disappeared from the face of the earth.
