A 17-year-old has died after explosives he appears to have been trying to make in his Oslo flat detonated. The blast blew out some windows in the block and left the victim's 19-year-old brother injured. Three other friends escaped unhurt.
Norwegian police said internet instructions on how to make explosives and some powder were found at the flat.
Police are questioning those present but are not reported to think they had links to any extremist groups.
Other apartments in the three-storey block were evacuated after the blast.
"At the scene we found written instructions on how to make explosives and some powder that the youngsters had mixed," Inspector Vidar Hjulstad told Norwegian public radio NRK.
The powder has been sent for analysis.
These idiots were Muslim:
Darwin Award Winner
Was he from the RoP cult?
God works in mysterious ways...sweet justice.
The good thing is he's dead. The scary thing is now teenage Muslims can make bombs to kill, right at home.
"The explosion killed a 17-year-old boy of Syrian origin."
Seemingly an unimportant fact to some. We wouldn't want to give the impression Muslims are terrorists.
Any local color on this? Or just your equivalent of our 14 yr old flying a prop plane into a Tampa hirise?
That link provides much more information than the BBC release: references to Syrian, Pakistani, and 3 (17, 19, 20) associated.
Yeah, but it appears that they were rather ambitious criminals, as opposed to budding terrorists. They'd previously used explosives to knock over slot machines, and were planning to blow up ticket machines next. The dead kid had double-digit crime statistics.
17 car thefts, threats, robbery and the list goes on and on.
The deceased teenager had been convicted of over 20 offenses, most committed when under compulsory placement in child welfare institutions in Oslo and Arendal. In his last conviction in June 2004 he was sentenced for 17 car thefts, threats, robbing a store, drug abuse and violence against a civil servant.
The status of the 19-year-old is still serious. He suffered face and head injuries and numerous fractures in the blast
Diversity training perhaps..
Man I used to LMAO 'watchin SCTV. John Candy's best stuff was in those skits.
We really need to somehow make Muslim girls more generous with their favors......
