Norway marks one year since massacre

As country marks anniversary of horrific day, Norwegians say they do not want to be defined by incident.

    Norwegians will mark the first year after the horrific shooting that saw dozens of young people killed at a youth camp.

    Anders Breivik has confessed to planting a bomb in Oslo and firing on young members of the Labour Youth Movement in Utoya in which 77 people were killed, saying that it was an attack on multiculturalism.

    But the young survivors of the incident and other Norwegians say that they do not want to be defined by the massacre.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Norway.
