Norwegian police said Sunday they had destroyed a suspect "bomb-like" device in the capital Oslo and made one arrest, on the heels of a deadly truck attack in neighboring Sweden killed four people.
 
"Bomb disposal officers carried out a controlled explosion overnight Saturday," a Norwegian police statement said.
 
Police cordoned off part of the busy Gronland district and evacuated local bars and restaurants after the crude device -- described as having the capacity to cause only limited damage -- was discovered Saturday evening.
 
Norway's PST police security agency is investigating.
 
There were no immediate further details.
 
The device was discovered a day after four people were killed and 15 injured after a truck rammed into shoppers in Stockholm. Swedish police have detained a 39-year-old Uzbek man in connection with that incident.
