The NYPD deployed extra security to Norway's consulate in Manhattan and to the consulates and missions of Denmark, Finland and Sweden as a precaution following two separate attacks in Oslo on Friday.

At least seven people died after a bomb ripped though a building that houses the Norwegian prime minister's office, and at least nine others were killed when a man dressed as a police officer opened fire at a youth camp connected to the country's ruling party. 

In a statement the NYPD said it had sent Critical Response Vehicles -- a high visibility patrol -- and other security resources to Norway's Mission and Consulate in Manhattan.

Similar patrols were also sent to the consulates and missions of Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.

The NYPD said it was continuing to monitor "further details and possible motives behind the attacks" but had no information of any specific threat against New York City.
