A man digging a grave at Olso's Hoybraten cemetery on Thursday called in the police, the armed forces and a bomb disposal squad after striking a large metal object that he thought was a shell left over from the Second World War.
The cemetery was cordoned off for the whole afternoon, until the bomb disposal squad determined that the metal cylinder was in fact a bottle of acetylene, a gas used for welding. 
 
"It wasn't a bomb. It was a bottle of acetylene. It's not harmful to anyone," Finn Belle of the Oslo police told The Local.
