A live bomb was found around 10pm on Wednesday evening in a residence in Snurråsen in the Siljan municipality of Telemark. It was successfully defused by bomb experts during the early morning on Thursday.
Just under 100 people were evacuated from their houses and a 100 metre exclusion zone was put in place by police. The nearby Midtbygda school was used as a meeting-point for evacuated residents who were given the go-ahead to return to their houses at 2am on Thursday.
A bomb disposal unit from Oslo was called to the scene. Police searched for more explosives, but have confirmed no more were found. Illegal drugs were found among the bomb.
