    Default Norway Terrorist Attacks

    Anyone paying attention to this?

    It started off with an explosion at the government building in Oslo, which was unusual to begin with.

    Highlights:

    • 1.30pm: Massive car bomb explosion kills at least seven in Oslo
    • 3.30pm: Between 25 and 30 dead as man disguised as police officer opens fire on island youth meeting Norwegian prime minister was due to attend
    • Eyewitnesses say bodies floating in the sea around the island
    • Man arrested on the island was 6ft tall, had blonde hair and spoke Norwegian - reports he was shot and wounded before being detained
    • Police fear explosives may have been laid at camp
    • Unknown group called 'Helpers of the Global Jihad' said to have posted message saying this is reaction to publication of Muhammed cartoons
    • Islands residents told not to reveal their location on Twitter or Facebook
    • British Foreign Minister William Hague condemns 'horrific' attack
    • Oslo Mayor: 'Wish I were on island to be shot instead of children'

    I saw that. Jesus.

    Kind of glad to hear they got the shooter alive. Hopefully more explanation will ensue.

    Yeah, the death toll climbed from seven to 30 in about thirty minutes.

    its just an eyewitness report that there are 20-30 dead. Police still holds on to 9 on the island and 7 in Oslo. Atleast according to danish media.


    Edit: Also according to Norwegian media, vg.no. There is a press conference scheduled to begin about now. The man arrested is Norwegian. Speculation is that it might be a rightwinged norwegian group that excuted this attack.

    I do wonder who is behind this. 90% of me leans towards islamist terror, but it might be something else.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    The only mean thoughts that went through my head were that... I hope they aren't giving the shooter too much morphine, since it said he was wounded.

    What kind of sickness is it that makes people think children are acceptable targets in a religious or political dispute?

    Sounds like a job of a right wing psycho to Falcarius. The reason being it was attacks on political targets instead of a random Islamic style attack, there was no real attempt to maximise the number of deaths, and also the gunman displayed stereotypical psychopathic tendencies of participating in communication with victims rather than just blasting at them.
