TV2’s employees received the advice of the police allowed to return to the premises in Oslo and Bergen after a bomb threat on Monday afternoon. They had been evacuated for an hour.
TV2s reports saying that the first bomb threat was called in at Bergen 15:40. Shortly after, a similar threat to Oslo dialed in.

– We have been in dialogue with the police, and they categorized threats so that employees could enter the buildings again, communicated TV2’s communications manager Jan-Petter Dahl to NTB at 16:40.

There were receptions in Bergen and Oslo who received threats.
– According to our emergency procedures, we chose to evacuate both buildings soon after, says Dahl.

TV2 writes that the threats were called in from a foreign number, and the caller spoke Norwegian.
