91 Confirmed Dead In Oslo Attacks.

Filed under: R.I.P.PolitikSad Sad

Such horrific and unnecessary loss of innocent life.

In light of yesterday's devastating bombing attacks and shooting spree in Oslo, Norway, authorities there have now confirmed that 91 have died, many of whom were teenagers at a youth camp.

As we've reported, the gunman was dressed as a police officer when he opened fire at the youth wing of Norway's ruling labor party.

The suspect is now being reported as Anders Behring Breivik (above), who is a member of an extreme-right group and deludes himself into believing that this means he's a "nationalist."

Police chief Svinung Sponheim said that according to internet postings by Breivik, he has "some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views."

Awful. We can't even begin to imagine what would allow someone to be capable of such callous disregard for human life.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to all those in Norway and around the world who have been affected by this.

Denzel To Host Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Pretty impressive, Denzel. Definitely a step up from hosting the Teen Choice Awards (Sorry, Katy Perry!)

Denzel Washington will host the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, on Dec 11, with support from a lineup of artists, including Florence and the Machine, Colbie Caillat, Herbie Hancock, and Elvis Costello.

Here's what Denzel had to say about his honor:

"I am honored to attend the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year and participate in this historic and momentous event to help spread the message of global peace."

Here's what Geir Lundestad, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, had to say about Denzel:

"We're thrilled to have Mr. Washington join us to host this year's Nobel Peace Prize Concert. He is the perfect ambassador for this event, which celebrates peace through music and illuminates the notable contributions of the Nobel laureate."

The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced in Oslo on Oct. 8, and the award will be handed out on Dec. 10 as always, which marks the anniversary of prize founder Alfred Nobel's death in 1896.
