Railways spokesman Olav Nordli has been quoted as saying, "A bag, apparently with no owner, was found next to platform 19. The area around the platform was evacuated. Therefore trains and buses will not travel in this area."
He added, "Police are on the scene and taking the measures they deem necessary. The area has been evacuated... this measure does not concern the entire central station but a good part of it."
Norway was on heightened alert following the massacre with the accused Breivik stating that he was not alone in his fight and there were other cells both within Norway and outside planning attacks. The country was subject to the worst of attacks since World War II.
There are various groups who had gathered in the massacre site to mourn the deaths of the innocents. Kim Nesselquist, honorary consul for Norway has been quoted as saying, "The attack hit Norway in its gut, just like it did here after the Oklahoma bombing and September 11th."
