OSLO — Norwegian police said one of the country's busiest airports was  evacuated as bomb experts investigate a suspicious bag for possible explosives.

Police spokesman Bjarne Flokenes said the airport in Bergen, Norway's second largest city, closed early Tuesday after security staff scanned the bag and found "what looked like an explosive device."

He says the airport has closed and a bomb squad from Oslo is on its way to Bergen.

No one has been arrested in connection with the incident.
