At least 87 killed in Norway Massacre


Saturday, 23 July 2011
The massacre on the island Ut�ya yesterday has claimed at least 80 lives, according to Norwegian police and it expected that, the number will increase.

“We do not have sufficient information as of how many people have been injured. Many severely wounded are treated, some at local hospitals, so we do not know the exact number,” says police director �ystein M�land.


“This is a situation which affects us all. It is an incident of catastrophic proportions,” said Police Director, who also calls the situation "confusing".

At least seven people were killed in the explosion in downtown Oslo, and according to the police the bomb was placed in a product or van in the area with several government buildings.

“The bomb was detonated after the offender had left the site,” said acting police chief in Oslo, Sveinung Sponheim.

The whole day on Saturday will see the Norwegian flag fly at half mast to remember the victims, and churches throughout the country will be open for citizens who seek community and solace.
On the ground, the police will be following closely the situation in Norway.
