'Norway will remain open country'

PM Jens Stoltenberg tells Al Jazeera that attack will not force Norway into silence or turn it into a closed society.

    Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg personally knew many of the victims of Friday's car bombing in Oslo and mass shootings on a nearby island.

    He told a grimly defiant crowd amassed in the centre of the capital, Oslo, on Monday: "Evil can kill a person but it cannot kill a people."

    In an interview with Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer earlier in the day, Stoltenberg admitted that Norway would be changed permanently by the attacks, but he vowed to ensure it remains an open society.
