Norway PM says cabinet ministers safe after blast

OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said that all cabinet ministers in the center-left coalition government seemed to be safe after a blast ripped through several government buildings in central Oslo.

"This is very serious," he told Norwegian TV2 television in a phone call, but added it was too early to say if the blast was a terrorist attack. He said that police had advised him not to say where he was speaking from.
