    At least 91 people have been killed in two separate attacks in Norway, shocking the generally peaceful Scandinavian country.

    A bomb blast exploded near a government building in Oslo, killing seven people on Friday, while hours later a gunman disguised as a police officer opened fire at a youth camp of the ruling Labour party on Utoya island, killing 80 others.

    Norway's TV2 televison station reported, without disclosing its sources, that the man, who was detained by police, had links to right-wing extremism.
