Who Knew Norway was a violent place

From the AP:

A group of men wielding knives, machetes and iron bars stormed into a center for asylum-seekers in a nighttime attack that left more than 20 people hurt, police said Friday....Five Chechen immigrants were arrested after the violence late Thursday, which police said may have been sparked by tension between different ethnic groups at the facility....Police spokesman Per Tore Fremstad said many of the injured were Kurds, but added it was not yet clear whether the attack had targeted Kurds specifically....Center director Ole Morten said the men arrested after the attack were not residents of the center....Between 40 and 50 men broke into the Nordbybraaten center, about 40 miles (60 kilometers) south of Oslo, and started attacking its residents, Lyng said....Police said as many as 23 people were injured.
