Swedish police faster than Norwegian after attack

Police in Sweden reacted much faster than their Norwegian counterparts after the terror attacks in Oslo on July 22, 2011, reports Norwegian public television.

The information is part of a police report from the Stockholm police department that Norway's 22 of July Commission has had privy to.

It took Stockholm police 37 minutes to set up barricades around the Parliament building, a governmental building called Rosenbad, and the Norwegian embassy.

However, it took police in Oslo two and a half hours to set up barricades around the Norwegian parliament building.

The Oslo police department does not want to comment on the contents of the report.
