Updated article about the entire incident:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-14262956



I can hardly believe this happened, I mean - Norway out of all places...


So far it's been confirmed that:

- At least 2 dead
- Lots of injured people (at least 9 - 7 of them severely injured - sent to hospitals)
- latest conference with police says 15 injured
- Police is controlling all the traffic at the airport - not closed
- The explosion did extensive damage to the government's headquarters
- The Prime Minister is safe
- The explosion happened 15:26
- Police are urging everyone to leave central Oslo.

There was a car in the area that was more heavily damaged than the other cars, so possible car bomb.

The explosion caused a rather big shock wave, so a rather large area is effected by this (Mostly glass and other materials that isn't so solid)

And apparently there are several people trapped inside buildings.

According to a bomb expert the bomb was "free air" - aka it was not detonated inside a building or similar constructions.

Update:

7 people confirmed dead - from the explosion
84 killed on the island by shooting

The shooter came from an extreme right-wing environment and seems to have been planning this for several years.

Only two died. That's not that bad.

Very, very sad.

I heard about that a while ago, it's really terrible. Shame about the two people who died and everyone else affected by this.

It surprised me though, I mean Norway would be the last place I'd ever expect something like this to happen.

So latest update says 7 people dead - and apparently there has been some shooting at an island just outside of Oslo. The island was being used as a camp for a political youth party related to the prime minister. The shooter have shot at least 4 people - no deaths confirmed so far.

He was apprehended by the police and apparently he is linked to the explosion...

This just keeps on getting more and more crazy.


edit: The shooter was dressed up as a policeman...

Churches have burned and murders have happened due to the influence of Norwegian Black Metal. A bomb going off is no big surprise.

There is a TINY difference between church burning (Which only happened to like 5 churches - and only 2 or less were successful) and a goddamn bomb killing at least 7 people and heavily injuring 9 or more people - and then youths being shot at leading to more heavily injured and unconfirmed amounts of dead ones.

Try finding out the llast time a bomb was detonated in Norway that killed and injured people.

So kindly refrain from making such banal comment or you'll find certain consequences occurring.

Consequences? Such as you flouncing away in a huff like a princess?

Norway needs the chaos to teach them some humility, since your bratty nation is full of overfed bigots. America got hit, Israel got hit, many other countries did, too. Whether or not terrorist related isn't the issue. The fact is, some people just want to watch the world burn. When you finally grow up and realize that fact, you'll be able to sit with the rest of the adults instead of acting like a child behind your PC screen.

This surprised me though, I never thought something like this would happen in Norway.

But it's sad that 2 died, and at least it wasn't a very large amount that were injured..

Well I hear talks about it being an alqaeda attack, though when such few people get injured, I'm swayed to think it's a government cover up, it's usually people worried about ethics that blow up a bomb and not harm as much people as possible.... so I doubt it's the terror network, even if they would claim responsibility.....
