I think it's like this:
The plane was coming in for landing, but weather was difficult so the captain wanted a go-around, but a wind gust made the plane hit the ground at an angle breaking the landing gear off on one side. The plane then skid on its belly down the runway. No one is dead, no serious injuries. Widerøe-route 921 from Tromsø to Hammerfest had 27 passangers and a crew of three. happened today at 14:40 local time (12:40 zulu)

Here is a resumee in English:
25 passengers and 3 crewmembers were sent to hospital after a Widerøe airchraft had problems when landing in Hammerfest yesterday.
The plane, on the way from Tromsø to Hammerfest, broke the right wheel-leg during landing, said Siw Sandvik in Widerøe to VG-nett.
According to Sandvik, the captain decided to discontinue the landing due to the variable and difficult windconditions.
But right then a strong windgust pushed the plane to the ground. Nobody was physically hurt, but many passengers were of cause scared by the incident.
The a/c involved was LN-WIK, according to people in Widerøe.
