A Reuters correspondent Walter Gibbs who was present at the site said that he could count atleast eight injured people. An official figure of deaths and injured people has not yet been published.
Most of the windows were shattered on the 17 storey building which housed Stoltenberg's office, as well as offices of other ministries including the oil ministry.
The cause of the blast is not known yet and many are suspecting it as a planned attack by international terrorists. Till now nobody from the Fire, Police or ministry has come forward to comment on this shocking incident.
Among the various terrorist organizations several analyst believes it could be the strike by Al Qaeda. The involvement of Islamic terrorism behind this can also be not ruled out. The reason is the involvement of Norway in Afghanistan. Another reason why these groups may hate Norway is because a Norwegian Newspaper reprinted Danish cartoon depicting Prophet Muhammad causing anger in the Islamic world.
