  Sabotage in Norway
Aftenposten Norway, Norwegian news in English: "Passengers finally were evacuated from a train bound for Stockholm after it literally was halted in its tracks for more than four hours Monday morning. The train had left Oslo Sunday night and was supposed to have arrived in Stockholm at 6:50am.

Instead, the train and its 230 passengers were left stranded in a rural area outside Katrineholm.

The web site for Swedish newspaper Expressen reported that the engineer operating the train first noticed that its brakes were malfunctioning. Then smoke started billowing from the eastbound train.

It later emerged that the train had collided with manhole covers that Swedish police now believe were willfully placed on the tracks.

Swedish railway Statens Järnväger initially denied claims of sabotage, but police launched an investigation."
