Oslo bomb attack

Metanews: Like the US before the attacks in New York and Washington a decade ago, Norway has never previously been subjected to serious terrorist attacks. This is not because the country has been particularly good at protecting itself; rather, it is because it has stayed away from international conflict. Though a long-standing Nato member, Norway has only recently increased its involvement in military missions in countries such as Afghanistan or Libya. Consequently, its foreign policy has not made the country many enemies, with Norwegian diplomats often citing the country's commercial whaling as the most controversial issue they have to deal with.
