    Yes. Prayers for Norway and the parents of those children. Seems to be home grown as perpetrator was described as "Nordic" and targets were ruling party. Still investigating and speculation is all over the place. Good article from BBC:

    As the son of Norwegian immigrants, this is shocking. These things don't happen in Norway- it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful nations on the planet- and also one of the most patriotic. My little brother and his family just came home from visiting family in Arendal on monday. This just proves that Nowhere is safe apparently from the barbarians.
    Jeg sender mine bønner til alle nordmenn og ofrene for dette terrorisme.

    Bruno-In June 1982 a Norwegian with a political grudge placed a bomb in the storage locker at the Oslo East railway station. Many were hurt and I believe there were some deaths but not much information in the Norwegian press.
