At least 91 people have been killed in two attacks in Norway: a bomb blast that went off near a government building housing the prime minister's office in Oslo, followed by a shooting incident at a youth camp near the city. The explosion in the Norwegian capital, which took place at 3:20pm local time, blew out most of the windows of a 17-storey building housing Jens Stoltenberg's office in the city centre. It also damaged nearby ministries, including the finance and oil ministry, which was on fire. The bomb killed at least seven people and left up to 15 others injured.

In the shooting incident, at a meeting organised by the ruling Labour party on Utoya island, outside Oslo, at least 84 people were killed and the assailant - said to be disguised as a police officer - was arrested.
