OSLO, April 8 (Xinhua) -- Norwegian police said they carried out a controlled explosion of what they described as a bomb-like object found Saturday night in central Oslo and detained one suspect.
The danger was now considered to be over, but the authorities still did not know what the object was, Svein Arild Jorundland, a police commander at the site, told reporters.
The suspected man was arrested earlier in the day and taken in for questioning while a large area was cordoned off after the object was found around the Gronland subway station in Oslo.
"There was a police patrol who came across a man they became interested in. In connection with him, they found a box with content that police believe is suspicious," Jorundland said earlier, adding the object was about 30 times 30 centimeters.
The incident came just one day after a truck ploughed into pedestrians on a busy shopping street before crashing into a department store in central Stockholm, Sweden, killing at least four and wounding many others.
