Nordic states pay tribute to double attack victims


All Nordic countries are observing a minute’s silence today for the victims of Friday’s double attack.

In total, 93 people are said to have been killed but Norwegian police say they will probably revise down the number of victims from the shooting.

In the capital, many people stopped to lay flowers this morning at a memorial site.

“I was just sitting a few blocks away when I heard the explosion and I came out and it was just like a war zone and of course that makes an impact,” explained Ing-Lina Dingstad from Oslo.

The destruction caused by the bomb in the city 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.
