Norway Massacre: PM and royals visit families


On Saturday, Norway’s Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg met the families and colleagues of the victims of Friday’s massacre on Utoeya island.

He said the country’s fundamental values are still intact despite the double-tragedy which saw 92 people killed.

“I hope that we will be able to maintain, some of the most important things we seen in the Norwegian society.”

“We are an open society, we are a democratic society, and we are a society where we have a very close relationship between politicians and the people,” he said.

Stoltenberg told reporters he personally knew several of those shot dead yesterday.

Norway’s King Harald and Queen Sonja also visited a nearby hotel to the shooting tragedy. Many of the survivors and their families have been taken there for counselling and police interviews.
