The Death Toll in Norway is Soaring

NPR is the bearer of the sad news of the senseless act.

Authorities in Norway now say more than 80 people were killed Friday at a conference for young people shortly after a massive explosion killed at least seven people in nearby Oslo. It’s believed the two incidents are related.

One person has been arrested for the shootings at the conference, which was being held on an island in a fjord about 45 minutes from Oslo. As this report says, “though police did not release his name, Norwegian national broadcaster NRK identified [the suspect] as 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik and said police searched his Oslo apartment overnight. NRK and other Norwegian media posted pictures of the blond, blue-eyed Norwegian.”

As our Swiss friends say, at such things we can only gaze shocked and speechless.
