Nordic countries pay tribute to double attack victims

All Nordic countries have observed a minute’s silence for the victims of Friday’s double attack in Norway.

A custody hearing for Anders Behring Breivik, the man charged, will be closed to the media and public, a judge has ruled.

93 people are said to have been killed but police say they will probably revise down the number of victims from the shooting. However, the destruction caused by the bomb in Oslo has left many buildings too fragile to be searched, prompting fears more bodies may be buried within.

Detectives meanwhile have called off their hunt for a second attacker after eyewitness reports suggested a possible second shooter.
