Anders Behring Breivik declared sane, sentenced to 21 years in jail for Oslo massacre

EDIT: Anders Behring Breivik, extreme right-wing Christian fundamentalist, arrested as the primary culprit for the two attacks in Oslo.

Check the guardian, they have live reporting and video.

Obviously, best wishes go out to all MTF Norwegian posters and also those who have friends in Norway.

Re: Tragedy in Norway, several dead after attacks in Oslo.

The man who impersonated a cop at Utøya from all reports is a Norwegian not a Muslim immigrant that some wanted it to be. He targeted Labor Party youth and the Labor PM.

I don't give a shit what side of politics, but no need to be killing innocent youth. Things will change in Norway, but the press have been excellent, no over the top sensationalist shit, just reporting the news at it came to hand.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Tragedy in Norway, several dead after attacks in Oslo.

It's so unreal. I live in Oslo, and would have been downtown at the time of the first attack if I hadn't accidentally missed the train. I was outside the government building only yesterday. Utøya, the location of the second attack, is situated ten minutes away from Hønefoss, the town where I grew up and my parents still live. The latest unconfirmed reports suggest there are between 20-30 casualties at Utøya alone. The news reports also suggest we may be dealing with a Unabomber type of Norwegian descent, who has been captured and is currently questioned by the police. I for one hope the latter to be the case.

I agree. The media coverage has been admirably balanced and level-headed. No finger-pointing towards convenient scapegoat groupings.

I got friends in Oslo, but luckily no family there. So I've been having friends, reading NRK and even the tabloids have behaved themselves.

There were many who wanted it to be Islamic immigrants, but it was a local.

Alex Schau this was a great tweet. "Dette er en dag hverken hodet eller hjertet kan forstå. Ta en telefon, ring på hos en nabo eller besøk noen du kjenner og slå av en prat".

Today is a day, which neither the head or the heart will understand. Pick up the phone ring your neighbour or visit someone you know and have a chat.

It's the worst day in Norway since WW2, but they will get through this tough time.

Re: Tragedy in Norway, several dead after attacks in Oslo.

Several undetonated explosives recovered at Utøya. So yes, we're most probably looking at the same culprit in regards to both attacks. Ethnically Norwegian, 32 years of age, apparently willing to disclose information to the police. Currently unknown whether he operated alone or had companions.

Re: Tragedy in Norway, dozens dead, including children, after two linked attacks in O

Based on the last CNN report I read, the death toll will likely end up much higher than the 16 reported currently. People are still trapped underneath the destroyed buildings, youth are either dead in the water or were shot and their bodies fell into the water. There are unconfirmed rumors that there are more bombs in Oslo, and all Norwegian citizens have been told to stay in their homes for the weekend.

This reminds me of Jared Lee Loughner, the guy in Arizona who went on an anti-government rampage. Incidents such as this cannot be explained by any rational minded person, but it does make you realize that the divisiveness of the political sphere can and does create disaffected minded individuals, and emboldens those who are already mentally ill.

What makes this story all the more tragic are the kids at the camp who were shot

Re: Tragedy in Norway, dozens dead, including children, after two linked attacks in O

A big Tragedy really. My thoughts are with the families that suffer a dead (or injury) of a family member or a friend.

But now that we know it's not muslam or even foreigner attack, can someone explain what motivate a bomb attack of a norweigan in their own country? I mean, it's not Spain, but do Norway have some kind of ETA?

Thanks in advance
