Title needs work, maybe changed to indicate that the powder was received in the mail. Anyone familiar with Norway would know that you can find lots of white powder there, in the form of snow. Rob T Firefly 16:42, 22 May 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sunday 21 May 2006 Police in Oslo continue the hunt for who can have sent envelopes containing an unknown white powder to several households. All of the recipients are being checked for possible anthrax contamination. In total, on Saturday 20 May, 11 households in Oslo received envelopes which contained this unknown powder.

For fear of possible anthrax contamination, all inhabitants are being checked for any related illness. Furthermore they have been moved out of their homes until the anthrax scare has been cleared up.

The affected houses and apartments are spread over the whole city, from Holmenkollen in the North to Nordstrand and Holmlia in the South. The police have so far found no connection or pattern to the recipients and, on Sunday, will conduct a meeting as to decide how to further continue the investigation.

“Dersom dette skulle vise seg å være en spøk er den i så fall særdeles dårlig. Vi tenker jo på tilfellene hvor det ble funnet miltbrannbakterier i kjølvannet av 11. september i USA” rough translation (If this turns out to be a prank/joke, then it’s going to be a real bad one. We’re thinking of the case where anthrax bacteria was found in the wake of 11 September in the US) Oslo Crime unit’s Jostein Plassen.

All the envelopes, that have been found, have been sent to Folkehelseinstitutet (public health institute) for analysis, although the findings will not be clear for a few days yet.

The recipients have been sent to their local casualty units for check-ups. They are being questioned by the police in an investigation to discover the identity of who lies behind the incident.

None of the recipients are known to have any suspicion as to what lies behind this situation.
