Right now there is a military excercise going on in Norway. Thousands of military vehicles are causing trafficjams in south-east Norway. It is NATO´s operation "Iron Sword". About 6000 soldiers take part in this excercise which will be going on until June 20th. 10 countries attend and Norway is attending with about 1000 soldiers. This exercise is a part of NATO´s Respons Force (NRF) which should be able to respond to situations around the world on short notice.

There are no english articles about "Iron Sword" yet, but hopefully you might be able to find some here soon : Norwegian Defence - Official Website - English


In the meantime, Scandinavians can follow some of the events here

Nine german soldiers were injured after four german vehicles from Iron Sword crashed last friday. Two of the soldiers were seriously injured. The accident happened after the driver in the first vehicle slammed the brakes and stopped short. The vehicles behind him couldn´t stop in time. And there ya go... BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM. They had to close the road for some time after this accident happened.
