(ROUGH CUT-NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: At least 100,000 people, many carrying white or red roses, rallied in Oslo on Monday to show support for victims of attacks that killed 76 people, police said. The crowd gathered outside the capital's city hall to mark opposition to a city centre bombing and shooting attack on Friday. Norway's King Harald, Crown Prince Haakon Magnus and Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg attended the rally. Addressing the crowd Stoltenberg said "cruelty can kill a person, but never defeat a people." Initially the event was a parade through the streets of Oslo, but due to the vast number of people showing up the march itself was cancelled. Instead people wandered through the streets carrying flowers.
