At least 87 people were reported killed in two separate incidents of shoot out and a bomb explosion in Norway.

Norway Police have said at least 80 people were killed in a shooting spree at the youth camp of Norway’s Labor Party near Oslo.

Police director Oystein Maeland told reporters early Saturday they had discovered many more victims after initially reporting the death toll at 10.

Mr. Maeland couldn’t say how many people were injured in the shooting.

Hundreds of youth were attending the summer camp organized by the youth wing of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s Labor Party on the island of Utoya.

Blast toll reaches 7

Police have confirmed seven deaths in the Oslo bombing but expect the number to rise.

National police chief Sveinung Sponheim says seven people were killed by the blast in dowtown Oslo, four of whom have been identified, and that nine or 10 people were seriously injured.

Norwegian media name bombing and shooting suspect

Norway’s national broadcaster NRK has named the suspect in the Oslo bombing and youth camp shooting spree as Anders Behring Breivik.

NRK and other Norwegian media also posted pictures of the blond and blue-eyed Norwegian. NRK said police searched the 32-year-old’s apartment in Oslo overnight. Hindu
