As Norwegians began to face up to the extensive loss of life from yesterday’s twin attacks in Oslo and Utoeya, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg updated reporters on the investigation into the tragedy.
“They have so far arrested one person,” he told a news conference in Oslo.
“They have not concluded whether its one or more than one person that is behind the two attacks. We will not speculate. We will await the results of the investigation before we say anything more.”
Later, police told reporters that they have arrested and charged a 32-year-old man in connection with the attacks.
Norwegian television TV2 named the suspect as Anders Behring Breivik.
Investigators said the suspect’s website indicates he has right-wing, Christian-fundamentalist beliefs.
