The morning after a bombing and shooting spree left 91 dead in Norway, the country's Prime Minister - Jen Stoltenberg - says police were still seeking a motive for the rampage. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NORWEGIAN PRIME MINISTER, JENS STOLTENBERG, SAYING: "I think it's too early to comment on the motives and what's the reason behind the attacks, both in Oslo and at the Labour youth camp at Utoeya. It is very important for us to be very clear when it comes to the responsibility of the government, and the police who has just started the investigation. One man is arrested and I think we will wait until we have seen more results of the investigations before we want to comment of the motives." That man is a 32 year old who police say has links to right-wing extremists. They believe he detonated a bomb in downtown Oslo that killed seven, before travelling to a youth camp outside the city, where he shot and killed at least 84. While Norwary is not known as a haven for extremists, Stoltenberg says he has grappled with right wing groups. (SOUNDBITE) (English) NORWEGIAN PRIME MINISTER, JENS STOLTENBERG, SAYING: "Compared to other countries I would not say we have a big problem with right wing extremists in Norway, but we have some some groups, we have followed them before." The attacks were Europe's deadliest since 2004, when almost 200 were killed in a Madrid train bombing. Andrew Raven, Reuters
