The bomb that rocked Oslo on Friday was followed by a deadly shooting spree at a youth meeting of the Labour Party in the nearby island of Utoeya. Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg had been due to visit the meeting tomorrow. The PM told Norwegian television all government ministers are safe but that the situation was “very serious,” while State Secretary Kristian Amundsen said the area where the bombing took place was not as crowded as it could have been due to a public holiday. In Utoeya, one person has been arrested after man who dressed as a police officer was identified as the shooter. More than a dozen people are believed to have died in the attacks.
