Intifada in the city of Oslo

Filed under: Multi Kulti, Norway — limewoody @ 7:26 pm

A sculpture of UN’s first secretary general Trygve Lie, standing outside the Furuseth centre in Oslo, has been vandalized by a group of immigrant youths. The youths tied a chain around the monument and used their car to pull it down from its plinth. The act is believed to be a response to the ongoing Israeli-Lebanese war. This is the second time in two weeks that the sculpture has attracted the attention of vandals. On July 24, car tires were placed around the base of the sculpture and set afire in an attempt to destroy it. Burning tires were also placed around the head of the sculpture. Last night crime technicians were at the scene trying to asses the damages. It’s not known if the sculpture suffered irrepairable damages. Two youths has been apprehended in connection with last nights fire.
