A “bomb-like device” has been discovered in central Oslo, according to Norwegian police.
 
A suspect has been arrested and is in custody.
 
A large area has been cordoned off following the security alert, reports say.
 
The incident comes a day after Sweden was hit by a terror attack, when a lorry was driven at shoppers in the capital Stockholm, killing four people.
 
“We have cordoned off a large area when we have found a bomb-like object. We’ll be back with more,” Oslo police wrote on Twitter.
 
They later updated with: “We have no control on the spot, and are now awaiting until necessary investigations are concluded.”
 
“We have control of a person with a status of a suspect,” they added.
