The day of terror began with a bombing outside of the Prime Minister’s office in the capital of Oslo
.  The car bomb, described by officials as similar to the blast that rocked Oklahoma City in 1995, killed at least seven people. The explosion blew out most of the windows on the 17-storey building housing the office as well as nearby ministries.  Heavy debris littered the streets and smoke rose over the city centre.

Later that day, a lone gunman dressed in a police uniform opened fire at a youth camp on Utoeya Island.  At least 85 teenagers were killed.

The death toll is expected to rise as officials search for missing people.

Survivors of the shooting have said they ran into the water to escape the gunman. The suspect allegedly opened fire at the youth camp and kept shooting for 90 minutes, until the SWAT team arrived.

Police said Saturday that the SWAT team arrived 40 minutes after they were called.

Police have identified the 32-year-old suspect, and the Norwegian national broadcaster NRK said he is Anders Behring Breivik.

Breivik is said to have visited Christian fundamentalist websites and once belonged to the youth wing of a rightist party. Authorities say he is keen to tell his story.
