Man opens fire at ruling party youth camp

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-07-27

A man wearing a policeman's uniform opened fire at a youth meeting of the ruling Labour Party in Utoeya, an island near Oslo, Norway's state television reported. Earlier on Friday, a bomb attack targeted government buildings in downtown Oslo.

AP - Police say they are sending anti-terror police to a youth camp outside Oslo after reports of a shooting there following the bomb blast at the government headquarters.

The news site VG reported that a man dressed in a police uniform opened fire at the camp. It says several people were injured.

Oslo police chief Anstein Gjengdal said anti-terror units were being sent to the camp at Utoya, outside the Norwegian capital.

He had no other information on that incident, which came hours after a bomb blast outside the government headquarters killed at least two people and injured 15.
