Oslo Attack - Latest Updates

At least seven people, possibly more are reported to have died in the bombings that took place in Oslo's Regjeringskvartalet, the Government quarter located in central Oslo. There are people still trapped in the buildings.

In the related shooting attack at the youth camp on Utøya Island, Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg confirmed that the current number of people killed at the youth camp was nine or 10, but said police, "fear that there could be more."

The shooter identified himself as security and was allowed to get close to the campers before he opened fire. When some of the campers attempted to flee by jumping into the water and swimming to the mainland, the shooter targeted them, and some bodies that still appear to be floating in the water have yet to be recovered.Police reported that most of the casualties were teens of about 15 and 16 years old

The police have the Utøya Island shooter in custody, and he is said to be Norwegian, although no information has been given out about his affiliations, identity or motivation. He was seen both at the site of the bombings and on the island, not at all improbable since the road to the island is only a short distance away from central Oslo and can be reached easily by car in a matter of minutes.

Given the scope and the synchronized timing of the attacks, it's almost impossible that he acted alone.

More as it comes in.

please helps me write more gooder!
