Skip to comments.Norway Camp Shooting: 'As Many As 30 Dead'
Posted on 07/22/2011 1:13:31 PM PDT by Red Badger
As many as 30 people are feared dead in a shooting at a Norwegian youth camp after a bomb in the capital Oslo killed at least seven.
Shots were fired by a man dressed as a police officer at a youth meeting of the ruling Labour Party in Utoya - an island on the outskirts near the capital.
An eyewitness reported seeing between 25 and 30 bodies.
Norwegian police said they thought there could also be explosives on the island.
Around 600 people were believed to be taking part in the summer camp - most of whom were teenagers aged between 14 and 18.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg had been due to attend the event.
One man was arrested after the incident - he was described as tall and blonde, and spoke fluent Norwegian.
Sky sources said he was shot and wounded during the arrest.
Police said they suspected he was linked to the bombing in Oslo.
Emilie Bersaas, 19, was on the island when the shooting started and said that people started running and screaming when they heard the gunfire.
"People are very shaken up as we do not know who is ok and who is not," she said.
"There are a lot of people I do not know anything about.
"It was terrifying - at one point, the shooting was very close to me and hit the building I was in.
"The people in the next room screamed loudly."
Sky's security editor Sam Kiley said a specialist swat team had carried out the arrest of the gunman.

Norway, why Norway is a European socialist paradise, this doesn’t happen in one of those, it’s only in the USA that sort of thing happens—because we’re heathens without European sophistication:<
Islam has been known to infect blond haired blue eyed people too.
Camp for teens 18-20 yrs old for the labour party.
The news report seems to go out of its way to say the one perp they have doesn’t fit the descriptionn of your average muzzie.
I thought gun control prevented massacres!
You mean European socialist paradises have snakes in the grass?
There goes decades of liberal preaching we must imitate Europe - literally up in smoke!
Muammar Khaddafi has already threatened to take the war to Europe.
Islamic shock troops and fifth columnists have been in place throughout Europe for years.
To the white people of Europe: You can run, but you can’t hide.
So man up and kick these invaders out.
No mercy. Because they shall surely show none to you.
This can only mean one thing....they aren't controlling them enough and they must do more. /s

“To the white people of Europe: You can run, but you cant hide.
So man up and kick these invaders out”
Some get it, some don’t.
I pray for those families, I cannot even express how much sorry they must be feeling...
Weren’t those the “Obama Youth” types at camp. These were kids that wholeheartely embraced the multicutural myth of appeasing Islam. Their leaders allow thousands of Muslims into their homeland every year, preaching diversity and tolerance.
Wasn’t Norway the place that found that 100% of all forceable rapes were committed in their country last year (like 1356 of 136) were linked to Muslims?
The same ideology that panders, like here in the US, will get you killed. Why are Liberals so f-ing stupid?
I’m confused—I thought Norway required all adult males to own a gun. If that’s so, I wonder why someone there couldn’t stop the killer. Of course, this probably happened in one of thoseI “Gun Free Zones”....
I want to do the same thing here, but Durbin, Holder and Obama (and Kagan) have other ideas.
Norway has fairly widespread gun ownership - but they also have mandatory registration that will make it easier to take the next step, now that their far left has an excuse.
The Norwegian Register of Hunters was established in 1982 by the Directorate for Nature Management which was also responsible for operations. In March 1999 this operation was transferred from the Directorate located in Trondheim to the Brønnøysund Register Centre.
The tasks carried out by the Norwegian Register of Hunters at Brønnøysund primarily include registering hunters who have passed the hunting test and issuing the forms for hunting licence fees. Hunting license fee can be paid over the internet. You can also register for license hunting on our web site. These solutions are also applicable to foreign hunters registered in the Norwegian Register of Hunters.The information that is supplied to hunters, for example about game, hunting seasons, weapons and ammunition, is provided by the Directorate of Nature Management.
At the start of the new hunting year on 1 April 2008, 417 400 hunters were registered by the Norwegian Register of Hunters. 42 570 of these were women. 194 300 of the registered hunters paid the hunting licence fee last hunting year, and of these 3 000 were foreign-national hunters.
That vid is really hard to make out.
They seem to be taking cover after coming under fire. It looks like some are shooting back.
Muslims are no longer welcome in Amercia...
Muslims are no longer welcome in America...
Just a brief, but I believe a permit is required for any firearm.
Typical Islamic tactics. They like to fight unarmed kids and women.
not last year... for the past FIVE years!
The Brotherhood in Blue has a real problem now....
These bastards hsould NEVER have been “welcomed” in any western nation.
They are modern day NAZIs.
Obviously I got that one wrong-—thanks for the website.
Thanks! Don’t know why I thought it was Norway....but these days, I more or less stay confused!
Sounds like the Norwegians are not putting up with the Socialist Green Party (AKA ) - Fascist.
As Stewie would say,
How’s that multiculturalism working for you? Huh?
Pretty good? Huh?
One of my dad’s cousins was in the Norwegian underground as a teen during WWII. He never spoke about it in fear of reprisals from Germany - even 50 years later.
He ended up a very wealthy businessman and had hunting leases throughout Norway. Oddly enough, he only owned one rifle - an old bolt action. Well, at least that is what the government thought.
In WWII, the first thing the German’s did when they came to a Norwegian town is go to the town hall and get the registrations of the guns, collect them, and question the owners, and in many cases arrest them.
My dad’s cousin hid under a pile of potatos in the cellar when the Nazi’s came looking for them guns and the men in his family. He never forgot that.
If he’s still alive, get to the bottom of it by all means necessary.
Sheesh, for every Arab, Turk, Palestinian, Asian, Black, or Balkan that Leaves Islam, they have umpteen witless Converts in the U.S. and even the U.K.
I don't understand it, maybe they are just really Liberal, or doing for a Boyfriend, I married a (former) Muslim Girl and she doesn't even understand it.
They like to fight unarmed children. What they do to women and to goats (adults or kids) is worse.
I think the governments of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and England should order several hundred thousand of those models - but they may have a problem locating a supplier today.
Meanwhile...some in the socialist government in Norway, just yesterday, called for attacks on Israel....go figure..(shaking head)
“The junior partner in the Norwegian government, the Socialist Left Party of Kristin Halvorsen, (Sosialistisk Venstreparti), plans to vote on a measure calling for military action against Israel if it decides to act against the Hamas in Gaza ”
Why do you only direct this message only to Europe when America finds itself in the same danger?
Quite an experience, I daresay a possible near death experience.
FLANKING MANEUVER NOW!
Hate to bring it up, but what’s to stop a gunman walking into almost any school in America? Time it for an assembly and have enough guys to cover the exits and you could do a whole Beslan right here.
ABC radio news just gleefully reported that he was a “domestic extremist” — a resident who spoke fluent Norwegian.
It is NOT the actions of brave warriors, both armed and armored, confronting a threat.
Spread out and take cover as you move towards the gunfire = proper response.
Cowering behind a van = wrong.
I am reminded of the brave brave SWAT teams at Virginia Tech and at Columbine - selflessly pissing themselves and cowering while some students stood in the open filming with cell phones - and other students were being murdered.
They're horrible arn't they? ABC Radio News is one of Obama's biggest water carriers.
You may be thinking of Switzerland, where all able bodied male citizens are considered to be members of the Reserves. They are required to have their infantry weapon home, and ready to be called up at a moments notice.
Friday afternoon, in the middle of summer.
While I am not a big fan of ABC radio, I have some experience with broadcast news. No one, and I mean no one, with any talent or experience is working in radio on a hot afternoon in the summer.
You might just as well be listening to college radio.
He could be a Bosniak, like the terrorist in Germany last year.
This will happen here sooner or later. Likely sooner. And the Muslims will scream discrimination if there is any retaliation. On the other hand, I am surprised someone hasn’t walked into an American mosque yet and done it to them yet.
Yes—I did have the two countries mixed up-—thanks for pointing it out. At least that tells me why no one was able to stop the killings.
