Norway mourners pay their respects long into the night

Text size Aa Aa

Mourners in Oslo turned up at the city’s cathedral to pay their respects long into the night after Sunday’s mass for the victims in Friday’s deadly twin attacks.

The bed of flowers and candles has continued to grow as the death toll rose to at least 93 after another of those injured in the Utoeya island massacre, died in hospital.

Earlier relatives, survivors and politicians had come together to seek what comfort they could inside the cathedral. Among them Norway’s royal family led by King Harald and his wife Queen Sonja who were clearly overwhelmed by emotion.

Police have now begun bringing back to the mainland some of the bodies of the youngsters mowed down by a gunman as they attended a Labour Party summer camp.

A search is continuing for several others still missing, thought to have drowned or been shot in the water while they tried to escape.
