in Society

Eighty five people were confirmed dead as a gunman opened fired at an island youth camp on Norway’s Utoya island, few hours after a bomb blast hit government buildings in capital Oslo, killing seven victims.

The 32-year-old Norwegian blond man Anders Behring Breivik has been charged over the both horrific attacks, causing a death toll of 92. He had worked for an anti-immigration party as well as wrote blogs striking multi-culturalism and Islam.

Survivors of the Utoya shooting said Anders Behring Breivik shot his victims twice to make sure they were dead.

The Friday’s massacre is regarded as the Norway’s worst violence since World War II.

Now, let's take a look at some shocking photos about the dead youth camp attack.
