Norway Muslim family shares nation's grief

Isma Hajj Hamed was one of the many children killed by Anders Behring Breivik during his shooting spree.



    It is not just the big cities of Norway that are hurting. Hamar, a two hour's drive from Oslo, is mourning too.

    Khaled Hajj Hamed injured his leg running from the killer. His brother Isma could not run fast enough.

    Isma and Khaled were both at the Labour party's youth camp on the resort island of Utoeya when a man dressed as a police officer suddenly appeared.

    Khaled remembers running for his life, past scores of bodies, and then seeing what he feared the most.

    Isma was one of 68 people that were killed by Anders Behring Breivik. His family is mourning his death as many families across the country.
