Death toll now seventeen: seven in Oslo, nine or ten on the island.

CTV Calgary- Oslo police link camp shooting suspect to bombing - CTV News

Oslo police say they suspect the man arrested in a deadly shooting at a youth camp that killed at least nine people is also linked to the bombing that rocked the Norwegian capital earlier Friday, killing seven.

Acting Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim won't give any details about the man, who was dressed in a police uniform when he opened fire Friday on Utoya, an island just outside the capital, where the youth wing of the ruling Labor Party was holding an event for hundreds of youths.

Police say nine or 10 people were killed in the shooting and that the suspect had been observed in Oslo before the explosion there.

However:

An early, unconfirmed report put the death much higher. An eyewitness told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that he saw 20 to 25 bodies on the shore and that there were more bodies in the water.

Too early too tell what is what exactly, but this is bad enough.

In the press conference, the Justice Minister confirmed the man arrested is Norwegian.
