Norwegian police have evacuated a school in the western city of Bergen following a threat of a massacre emailed to a newspaper. Police spokesmen say teachers and students were evacuated to a nearby sports facility and that armed units have surrounded the school. They say no one has been arrested so far.

The daily VG that received the threat Tuesday said the email mentioned a weapon that "is safely stored and ready for action" and that Muslims would be targeted in the attack.

Police say they will check the school building after the evacuation.
