Today is it 2 year since this terrible event.
“Terror attacks in Norway in 2011 was a two terrorist attacks, partly directed against Regjeringskvartalet in central Oslo and partly against the Norwegian Labor Party Youth League Arbeidernes Ungdomsfylkings annual summer camp, with 560 participants, on the island of Utøya. On the afternoon of July 22, 2011 detonated a car bomb at Grubbe street in Oslo and about two hours later, the shootings began at teenagers and adults on Utøya. Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik, who was arrested in connection with the shooting on Utøya has admitted that he was responsible for both the explosion in Oslo and the massacre on the island.
The Norwegian police have confirmed eight deaths in the blast and 69 deaths related to the shootings on the island.
The trial against Breivik, held in Oslo courthouse, began on 16 April 2012. August 24, 2012, the District Court sentenced Breivik to the law’s harshest penalty, 21 years in prison. It is possible to keep Breivik confined after the sentence has expired if he would still be considered dangerous to society. Breivik chose not to appeal jail judgment – from wikipedia.org
Still today the surviving youth are struggling with what happen that afternoon – and have problems with moving on with their lives. Brievik was dressed in a police uniform and he called them over – and they run to him for help and he just shot them down.
