Police went into Hauskvartalet in central Oslo to evict people who have entrenched themselves there. Now there will be twenty-four hour security on site.

– We have also found cans of petrol and a molotov cocktail, says efforts leader Arve Røtterud from Oslo police to news agency NTB.
In all, 13 people are detained, after a number of squatters had barricaded themselves inside Hausmanns gate 42. The action went relatively peacefully, police said.

Police said there were between 30-40 people who were inside the apartment building, but more probably took abode in other buildings before police arrived on site Tuesday morning.
