Tragedy Hits Oslo, Norway

| Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

Oslo Bombing

This is so horrible and so sad.

A bomb went off in Oslo, Norway today, ripping through buildings including the Prime Minister's office.

Horribly, that's not the only incident. Just outside the city, a man dressed as a police officer opened fire at youngsters at a youth camp connected to the ruling party.

It looks like the situations are connected, and sadly it has left at least 7 dead and more injured.

Police Inspector Bjoern Erik Sem-Jacobsen said a suspect in the shooting has been arrested. He said the gunman, who was dressed as a police officer, pulled out a gun and started firing into the crowd of youths. There were unconfirmed reports that five people were wounded in that shooting.

A square in Oslo, where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded, was covered in twisted metal, shattered glass and documents expelled from surrounding buildings, which house government offices and the headquarters of some of Norway's leading newspapers. Most of the windows in the 20-floor high-rise where Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg and his administration work were shattered.

The damage in downtown Oslo was the result of "two or more bombs," but there aren't many specifics yet.

The Prime Minister, Jens Stoltenberg, who was working from home today luckily, has urged the country not to be afraid, because this kind of violence strives to strike fear.

We support that thought, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't show caution. Be alert and BE SAFE!

It's just absolutely despicable that things like this happen, and there are humans out there capable of doing it. Absolutely atrocious.

Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been rocked by this horrible happening.

    On the island there are even more dead.. They say more than 20



  2. 2

    I was going shopping in those streets, but then I got called up at work 15 minutes away. I feel so lucky for not being there after all. I will never forget this day.



  3. 3

    The suspect is a white, blond guy with a local accent. Looks like its politically motivated considering the targets. The people in charge of the situation are begging people to stay off the streets as there is no way to know if there are more attacks planned. Everyone is being told to go home. The hospital in Oslo, Ulleval, is asking for blood donations that are urgently needed and local people are being asked to open up their wi-fi as phones are jamming.

    Stay strong, Norway!



  5. 5

    I have been living in Norway for the past 7 years and I have never seen the country in such a state of shock. The atmosphere here is very similar to how it was on 9/11 in the States. No one can really understand what has happened and why. It does appear as if both incidents are politically motivated seeing as the bombs went off next the PM's offices and the shootings took place at the summer camp for the youth group of the leading political party. The whole country is on high alert and the center of Oslo is pretty much shut down. My heart goes out to all those effected by the shootings at Utøya and the bombings in Oslo.



  6. 6

    I am so afriad. I'm totally paranoid after reading this.



  7. 7

    It's pretty obvious that this is one of those Jihad groups.

    I wish we'd just bomb those fuckers to hell and back. Yeah, innocent people will die, but these things will never stop.

    Fuck their shit up!! Take care of business.



  8. 8

    Fuck muslims!!

    Re: Leonardo89Re: fedup1964 – You would both fail basic reading comprehension.



  10. 10

    It's terrible to live in Oslo now! I'v been stressed all day, and very scared. But I hope that we all try to be fearless, and strong for ouer contry! I don't understand how some one can do such a terrible thing to innocent people.
    ♥Norway♥

    Re: glamourextra

    How so?



  12. 12

    right now it doesnt seem like its a islamic jihad group. As glamourextra said, the shooter at utøya was blond and norwegian, not arabic. We so easily jump to the conclusion that is muslims, and Im not saying that its not, but right now there is no indication that its an attack from al-queda. And there is 10 confirmed dead on the island, and 7 from the bombing.



  13. 13

    This has that Terrorist Make-Believe country of Israel written all over it….



  14. 14

    Re: Leonardo89 – the suspect being held is white, blonde and has a local accent. this has nothing whatsoever to do with any kind of 'jihad' and there is no reason to think that Norway is any kind of target. this looks like it is a case of 'domestic extremism'. If you had properly read either my comment or any of the actual news coverage of this incident you would know that it is very obviously not the kind of terrorist attack you are thinking of.



  15. 15

    It's been confirmed that the shooter at Utøya is Norwegian.
    Truly a sad day.



  16. 16

    Another MK Ultra programmed assassin.

  17. Waboo says – reply to this


    17

    Absolutely awful, especially the photos from the island. Makes me sick. Looks to be case of some lunatic having a personal vendetta against the Labour Party, with the bomb in Oslo probably being a diversion.



  18. 18

    So sorry Norwegians. Our thoughts are with you. What kind of animal can look children in the face and still pull the trigger? I just can't fathom that type of evil hatred.



  19. 19

    Re: glamourextra

    Umm, you do realize that these Jihad fuckers have followers of all kinds of race? All these mentally insane people that have issues with their respective countries join the fight against their countries. Sad but true. It's not the first, and wont be the last.

    Apparently, the people taking responsibility are lying about it. They still need to be blown to hell n back.



  20. 20

    So most likely the UNited States will donate a bunch of money to help them fix this tragedy.. and then when Al Queda hits to avenge osama's death.. we wont do shit to help our own country.



  21. 21

    Re: Leonardo89 – There is nothing. absolutely nothing that suggests this is in any way connected to any kind of 'jihad'. EVERYTHING suggests otherwise. The suspect has been confirmed by the PM to be Norwegian. The targets are political. This is no more 'jihad' than the Dunblane massacre. To insist it is, despite ALL info to the contrary, is ridiculous and potentially harmful. don't be that guy.



  22. 22

    But on a lighter note (yes had to post a seperate one) condolences to anyone who lost their family, friends or loved ones. Killing innocent people all for some bs agenda or to prove or point or whatever the case may be is beyond disgusting.



  23. 23

    Sympathies and warmest wishes for peace and healing to the people of Norway. I'm sorry for your tragedy.



  24. 24

    Horrible!



  25. 25

    Seven people died because of the bombs, but the shooter on Utøy may have killed between 20-30 young people.

    I'll never forget this day.. it's the darkest day in Norway since WW2.

    I love my country, and I hope the people that did this will burn



  26. 26

    Where is the "Moderate" Muslim outrage? The silence is deafening.



  27. 27

    This is so horrible :(

  28. noa/ says – reply to this


    28

    now you can understand the israelis ? i really feel sorry for norway
    but in israel it happened for years and still the israelis are the Terrorists



  29. 29

    Re: glamourextra – I have to say I agree with you. There is so far ZERO evidence that these acts are related to Jihad. The authorities have been very clear about that. Some news agencies are jumping to conclusions when it comes who is responsible. I also agree with you that this is homegrown and politically motivated. It is not just a coincidence that the youth camp to the leading political party was a target just hours after the government offices were attacked. Muslims are not behind every bad thing that happens on this planet. Leonardo89 needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Not all Muslims are extremists. Unfortunately extremists can be found everywhere no matter what.



  30. 30

    Jihadi group Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami has claimed responsibility, citing Norwegian troops in Afghanistan and unspecified slights against the Prophet Muhammad.

    Re: MsJules – what? donate money? … to us? we're the second richest country in the world. moral support would mean alot, though.



  32. 32

    Fucking dune coons



  33. 33

    This is such a tragedy. We were on the street yesterday and everything was fine and now… :( I can't believe anyone would do this to our country.



  34. 34

    well they say now that it could be from the right extremes



  35. 35

    Thank you for the support Perez. We norwegians love you. Love&light



  36. 36

    Re: MsJules – Seriosly, thats what are going thru your head at this time??? First: How can you donate money, when you dont have any? Secoond: We have our own money to fix this, dont worry about that.
    This is the most horrible day in Norway in a long time. Im so glad that all my friends in Oslo are okay. In fact my cousin was in the building when the bomb went off. He`s fine thank god…



  37. 37

    Re: MsJules – WOW YOURE REALLY SMART! From what i know Norway's economic situation is far better than American. So you dont have to worry.



  38. 38

    Re: MsJules – You are incredibly morally inconsistent.



  39. 39

    Re: glamourextra – I second everything you said.
    Tenn et lys i kveld, for alle de døde, sårede og pårørende.



  40. 40

    Re: MsJules

    We really dont need your money, and thats a good thing. The damages made to buildings are not that extensive, and as other mentioned we are one of the richest countries of the lord. I've been watching the news all day and not once has the economical costs been mentioned.



  41. 41

    This is horrible, they have been showing this all night. So sad and scary. I never would have thought that they would spread to here. So close to Sweden.
    Wonder who is behind this and why.
    The bomb and the shooting, horrible.



  42. 42

    Re: Glamour_is_the_Life – he was some kind of nationalist. but i dont believe he did it all by himself.



  43. 43

    allalalalalalalalalala

    Also all rapes committed in Oslo in the last five years have been comitted by mooslums. And the incidence of rape in Norway has exploded in proportion to the number of mooslum immigrants. At the rate at which they breed, Norway will be a mooslum country in 20 years.

    Stop mooslum immigration to all Western countries now. Wake up!



  44. 44

    Re: MsJules – And all this time you have been making yourself out to be miss-knows-knows it all about life. How can you even say that? Also, they have their own money, Us aren't the only country in the world that can afford something like this. If you should help someone you should help the kids in Africa sense you got so much money you are the only ones that can help according to you.
    Re: mad_la – Don't think he was alone either, wonder what his reason was and who more was behind it. If it was one of the Al- groups.



  45. 45

    My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.



  46. 46

    Re: Leonardo89 – 'yeah, innocent people will die'. What an evil thing to say. Does the life of an innocent muslim child really mean less to you than the life of a white person? Have you considered that the kind of attitude you're taking is one that is probably held by many in the islamic world after another US drone attack kills innocent civilians?



  47. 47

    It's been confirmed that the shooter was, in fact, a Norwegian, CHRISTIAN nationalist and therefor it's pretty unlikely that there's any link to any islamic terror cells!
    This is such a tragedy. Nothing but compassion and sympathy from Denmark.



  48. 48

    It is more than 85 people who are confirmed dead now. I feel so sorry for friends and family of the victims. I got a friend my self who died today :( The mood is not very good right now! The person who did this: Anders Behring Breivik deserf we only had death penalty in Norway



  49. 49

    Re: womenarepreyRe: Leonardo89Re: fedup1964 – FUCK YOU!!!!you don't even know what you're talking about. If you don't know anything about Islam then say nothing. It was clearly done by CHRISTIAN nationalist. But if you do believe that muslims did it all. I will pray in my prayers so some moron muslim extremists will do any fucking jihad to yiou and send you to hell, world don't need garbages like you



  50. 50

    damn…
    more than 80 people…
    in the sun theres a picture of him attacking these kids. and you can see there coulnt be only 10…



  51. 51

    Re: Leonardo89 – I believe the whole story states that he was not affiiated w/ any religious or extremest group…just a mad man, seriously disturbed man with a ton of bombs and guns and ammo.



  52. 52

    Re: Leonardo89 – News reports say that the suspect ranted on anti-Islam and anti-Muslim message boards, so I'd say that's probably not the case.



  53. 53

    Re: womenareprey
    Oh would you shut the fuck up?

    I'm so sick of American ignorance.



  54. 54

    Re: MsJules – The only thing Norway is not short of is MONEY….



  55. 55

    The police just confirmed that there is 84 dead on the island :O



  56. 56

    i can't stop crying. this is so sad and scary, I feel like Norway is not my home anymore;(
    My thoughts and prayers goes out to the vicums and their loved ones. Norway



  57. 57

    84 kids, maybe more, were killed at Utoya.. I can't fathom why someone would do this.. It's absolutely horrible..



  58. 58

    A sick man shot and killed 84 teenagers!



  59. 59

    This is the worst and most dramatic thing that's happend in Norway since World War 2.
    The number of dead from the island utøya is 84… so far.
    The number of dead from Oslo is 7… but they have yet to search some of the buildings.
    The man who did it was norwegian.



  60. 60

    this is terrible the gunman was tall and blond sounds nordic doesnt he .. the victims where tall and blond … how awful this world we live in



  61. 61

    i agree leonardo



  62. 62

    Re: MsJules – Thanx for the condolences. We appreciate the love people.
    But I think we can afford to pay for fixing up our selves. We are usually the ones sending the money to everyone else. And right now the most important thing is to think of the poor victims.



  63. 63

    Re: jsqtsa – What is that supposed to mean?



  64. 64

    there were 91 dead on the island. and alote off people drowned while trying to swimm.
    my office is right where the bomb went off, i went home 20 min before the explosion and i just heard the explosion when i came home at first i thought it was a thunder,until people started to call and asked if i was ok. my heart goes to all the families and friends off the victims.



  65. 65

    can you people just stop arguing about religion isnt it enough that so many people died yesterday. You make me sick. just because an idiot does something horrible it doesnt mean that everyone who looks like him, or has the same believes as him is a nasty person.



  66. 66

    I'm actually stunned by some of the ignorant comments on this thread. Norway needs money? It was a Muslim extremist? If you don't have a clue, don't say anything at all. And Re: womenareprey – , if you're so afraid of them, at least know it's spelled Muslim and not 'Mooslum' and Re: dlstxmale – stop making shit up ffs.



  67. 67

    Fucking Christian Extremists =/



  68. 68

    Re: Kongesoppen – honey, it's been awhile since you're not the second richest countryin the world… actually, I think Norway has a better standard of living than US, for example financial support for a woman who gave birth (monthly allowance) is 8000 euros

    PS: Norway, stay strong!!



  69. 69

    It was a native Norwegian, extremist right supporter. It wasa political act. This is one of the examples why cultivating hate towards each other is unbearable. People like this, no matter which nationality, colour of hair etc. should be stopped and locked in a mental hospital. This was not only an attach towards political views, or families, but also against the Nordic culture and lifestyle where tolerance has always had great importance. There are nearly 100 people dead. And just because of one twisted hater!!! Dear Norwegians, it was a single person acting, and I am beyond words. My deepest condolences and stay strong! All my love to you. Kram



  70. 70

    84 dead on the island. And theres some talk there might have been another shooter there too. Sick.



  71. 71

    Re: womenareprey – The same person who states in his nick that women are prey, worry about women getting raped? And exactly where do you get your information from, ignoramus? "All" rapes? You truly believe that in a country where the majority consist of ethnic Norwegians, no rape was comitted by any of them, but all of the minority that consist of Muslims? Of course, that makes sense. Very logical. Fact is, most rapes are comitted by someone you know, and in Norway, most of those are committed by ethnic Norwegians.



  72. 72

    I´m from Denmark, and can tell you that the current number of deceased is 92, and 20 people are seriously injured :( It´s such a devastating time!



  73. 73

    92 is confirmed dead, seven dead so far in the city and 85 on the island or more! I live an hour away from Oslo and a friend of mine was supposed to go to the camp but didn't, but i have a nother friend that was there and got shot. THANKFULLY she's not dead but badly injured!



  74. 74

    Terrible to learn the extent of the tragedy this morning. This morning I understood the tragedy was even bigger than anyone could have ever expected. The bodycount from the youth rally camp is just heartbreaking.

    Now the sadness is replaced more and more with anger. Not only have a lot of people lost their lives but what happened was such a brutal attack on Norway, democracy and the idea of a stable, open and tolerant society.



  75. 75

    Re: fedup1964 – You must feel preeeetty stupid now.
    RIP to all the victims no one should be caught in the crossfire of an individual's issues with the government. I hate innocent civilians dying for things that are nothing to do with them.

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch

    I'm sure there are a lot of posts in regards to one of my comments and I am not even going to read them because I already know what i said was wrong and I issued this statement on another post in this blog.. but i'll put it here as well. " An earlier comment I made was very insensitive and I regretfully take it back. While I still stand by the fact that America is more concerned by what happens in every one elses country (and hell apparently more concerned with the death of a "celebrity" ) then they are real tragedies that occur within our own nation. My original comment on another thread was rude, insensitive and I am ashamed I even made it. So i do apologize to anyone who was hurt by my statements. And I hope those who lost someone in this tragedy find sollace in the memories they shared with the people they lost. "
