At least ten people are killed in shootings at a youth camp only hours after a massive bomb blast in central Oslo.
One man has been arrested after the shooting and police see a connection between the two attacks.

According to a witness the gunman identified himself as a police officer before he started killing people.
Almost 700 young members of the Labour Party was at the island for a youth camp.
Police now confirms that at least ten people are killed in the shootings at the island. An eyewitness tells VG Nett that more than 20 to 30 people are dead.
