Deadly polar bear attack in Norway
OSLO, Norway -- Norwegian authorities say a polar bear has killed a British man and injured four others in an attack on a group of campers in the Arctic Svalbard archipelago.
A spokeswoman for the Svalbard governor's office, Liv Asta Oedegaard, said all the victims were male. But she did not immediately have further details.
She said the attack occurred Friday morning and the injured were taken to the hospital in the Svalbard capital Lonyearbyen, about 25 miles away.
Polar bear attacks are not unusual in the Svalbards, which attract well-off and hardy tourists with wilderness scenery and abandoned Soviet mining communities. Visitors are urged to carry high-powered rifles whenever venturing outside Longyearbyen.
