You know its only natural to suspect that followers of a certain faith are responsible for this outrage…
Or maybe not…
Tragically the death-toll is substantially higher than it was when I first posted this post in the pre dawn hours this morning:
TWIN shooting and bomb attacks left at least 87 dead as a Norwegian gunman disguised as a policeman opened fire at a youth camp and a bomb blast tore through government buildings in downtown Oslo.
“We have confirmation that at least 80 people are dead. We do not exclude a higher toll,” police spokesman Are Frykholm told AFP, speaking of the shooting spree a summer school meeting of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s ruling Labour Party on Utoeya, an island outside the capital.
Police had earlier confirmed that seven people were killed as a powerful bomb ripped through central Oslo — where the prime minister’s office and several government buildings are located — and nine were critically injured.
A 32-year-old Norwegian was arrested after the shooting spree. According to the TV2 channel, he has links to right-wing extremists and possessed two weapons registered in his name.
Not at all cheerful about this Comrades
