Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Guardian:

There are 700 people on the island camp. At 5.20 pm ambulance personnel were told not to proceed out to the island because there was still shooting there. One Labour youth member tweeted: "We are sitting down by the beach. A man is shooting clothed in a police uniform. Help us! When are the police coming to help us!"

Police stormtroopers are about to land on Utoya island from helicopters. Shooting still going on. Eyewitness describes shooting from his position on the mainland: "There is a little war going on out there"

It could go either way.  

If if was a "home grown" group one would expect the person to look Norwegian.

If it WAS an Islamic terrorist attack - and there's ZERO evidence for that at this time! - they would hardly send a swarthy man, wearing a keffiyeh, saying, "I'm here to ensure your safety, insha Allah"
