Witness tells of Utoya shooting attack

At least nine people were killed in the incident at a summer camp for teenagers convened by Norway's ruling party.

    A gunman opened fire at a summer camp in Utoya, Norway on Friday.

    The camp for politically interested teenagers was convened by Jens Stoltenberg, the Norwegian prime minister's, ruling Labour Party.

    At least nine or ten people were killed in the shooting incident, while seven people were killed in a "related" bomb blast in Oslo.

    Kristine Melby, who was in her cabin, just about 200 metres from where the summer camp was being held, witnessed the shooting and events that followed.

    Melby spoke to Al Jazeera from her residence in Utoya.
