An elementary school in Oslo was closed once again on Monday, after threats were made against it via social media. Police, city, and school officials don’t think the threats are real, but decided not to take any chances.
Students at the Grünerløkka School in one of the Norwegian capital’s most trendy and popular neighbourhoods were being sent to other schools while police investivated the latest threats. State broadcaster NRK reported they involved death threats against specific individuals, while those last week involved a bomb threat at the school.
“Now we have received new threats of a different character, but from the same source,” Dag Hovdhaugen, assistant director of the city’s education department. “Until we have checked them out, we must consider them real.” Steinar Hausvik, operations leader for the Oslo Police District, told NRK that an investigation was underway.
