BBC News - Norway mourns island youth camp and Oslo attacks

BBC News - Norway mourns island youth camp and Oslo attacks: "Norwegians are mourning the victims of a massacre at an island youth camp and a bombing in the capital Oslo.

At least 85 people died when a gunman opened fire at the Utoeya camp on Friday, hours after a blast in the government quarter killed seven. Another four are missing on the island.

A 32-year-old Norwegian man was charged over both attacks, but police say it is possible another person was involved.

The suspect's lawyer said he admitted responsibility for the attacks.

He said his client believed his actions were 'atrocious' but 'necessary', adding that he would explain himself in court on Monday.

The suspect surrendered when approached by police officers, police said.
Police chief Sveinung Sponheim said they took 45 minutes to reach the island, and the gunman was apprehended 45 minutes after that."
