The Observer sends us more news about Norway, as a follow-up to Dymphna’s post from yesterday. First, his own commentary on the article:
Here’s another story from wonderful multicultural Norway. A multicultural paradise that our socialists politicians have dreamed about creating in Norway for the last thirty or so years. And guess what? They finally got it. This latest incident involve some Chechen gentlemen/asylum-seekers who decided to settle a minor dispute with some fellow Muslim peace lovers in a very un-Norwegianlike fashion.
As you can see it’s not only the capital, Oslamabad, that is deeply affected by the arrival of these new ‘cultural enrichers’. Vaaler, where this ‘dispute’ took place is a sleepy little one-horse town, and, like a lot of other towns and cities in Norway, it has the misfortune of having an asylum center within its borders.
And now the news story from today’s Norway Post:
Serious attack on Immigration Center — 21 injured
21 persons were injured, several of them seriously, after a group of around 50 persons attacked an immigration reception center in Vaaler in Oestfold county late Thursday evening.
The attackers arrived in cars, armed with iron bars and other weapons, possibly also knives. They entered the buildings, pulled persons from their rooms and beat them up. According to NRK, it appears that the attackers were Czechenians [sic] who attacked Kurdish asylum seekers at the transit camp. It seems a minor conflict earlier Thursday may have been the reason for the attack, according to a witness, quoted by NRK.

“When the police arrived, the attackers had already left, and the camp looked more like a battlefield,” says Alf Solstad of the Oestfold police precinct.
The police cannot confirm the nationality of the attackers, but were Friday morning investigating the incident, trying to find out what actually happened.
Seven of those injured were taken to hospital, while 13 were treated at the Moss casualty clinic.
The attackers also damaged doors and windows at the transit centre.
