Norway's food safety authority found gross hygiene breaches and closed down nine take-away restaurants in Oslo and neighbouring areas.
Dirty premises, rat droppings and lack of hygiene were what the food safety authority found in unannounced inspections in a total of 40 restaurants from April 4 to 6, Xinhua news agency quoted the agency as saying.
Twenty-eight businesses received notification of decision on imposition of corrections and nine businesses were closed because of very poor hygiene.
