Thread Name: BS: Oslo Bombing and Shooting at Youth Camp
Subject: RE: BS: Oslo Bombing and Shooting at Youth Camp
This is just plain horrible, I lack words. When I went to bed last night the reports from Utya were already speaking of 25-30 dead, but when I got up this morning it's now 'at least 80'..

This is the man held by police for questioning about the bombing in Oslo and the shooting on the island of Utya. The article states that he's lived right outside of Oslo all his life and a friend of his is quoted as saying he turned right radical in his late 20s. Hitherto unknown by the police except for a minor traffic violation some years back.

Reportedly, there were about 560 young people on the island at the time of the shooting, and a search is still going on on Utya and in the lake surrounding the island. I have been unable to find a figure saying how many young people are still unaccounted for.
