People going to work in Oslo's Fornebu IT district next week might be in for a shock, at least if they haven't been reading the newspapers. 
 
Some 2000 Norwegian troops are set to descend on the area on Sunday, battling an imaginary enemy around Telenor's headquarters, at the city's container terminal at Sjursøya, and in military areas around Oslo, in the first exercise to take place in the city since 2004.
