A horrifying day gets worse in Norway. Hours after a blast ripped through central Oslo... a shooting rampage at a meeting of the youth wing of the ruling Labor Party. Police say as many as 10 people were killed at an island North of Oslo. Authorities say a man has been arrested and is being questioned by police, who believe he also has knowledge of a bomb blast in Oslo that killed seven people. Earlier, a large bomb blast tore through the facade of a 17-story central government building, in Oslo blowing out most of the windows and scattering debris. No one is claiming responsibility for the attack. There is suspicion that a car bomb was involved. Eyewitnesses describe what happened.

The attacks come just over a year after three men were arrested on suspicion of having links to al Qaeda and planning to attack targets in Norway. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
