Blasts in Brussels Tuesday do not yet affect the threat level in Norway, but this may change quickly,  PST (Police Security Service) says.
– PST gathers and collects all the relevant information concerning the events in Belgium, to form a basis for whether this affects the threat level in Norway. We have no information indicating that the threat level has changed. But that may change quickly,  communications director Trond Hugubakken of PST said.
Threat assessments form part of the basis for the measures police initiates in the various police districts around the country. This also includes airports.
– Norwegian police are already in a heightened emergency situation. Parts of the anti-terrorist measures were implemented after the terrorist attacks in Paris. And these measures are still in effect, according to Hugubakken.
According to PST, it will take time before an overall assessment is ready.
