It appears there were coordinated terrorist attacks on the ruling party and government of Norway:
At least seven people were killed in a pair of explosions apparently targeting Norway’s government buildings in Oslo and at least 10 more killed in a shooting outside the capital, police said today. . . .
Hours after the blasts, a gunman opened fire at a youth meeting on an island outside of Oslo, killing at least 10. One man was arrested in connection to both attacks. Norwegian Minister of Justice Knut Storberget said the man in custody was Norwegian but his motives are unclear at this time.
Our prayers are with the victims and their families and our hopes are with the police and armed forces of the Scandinavian nation. May be perpetrators be swiftly captured — and brought to justice.
UPDATE: From Michelle Malkin who also has a good roundup, “Absolute evil…At least 80 youths killed at the camp, according to police.” She’s right. That is absolute evil. Jim Hoft echoes Michelle, calling this “Pure evil.” Those actions define evil.
