Update on Oslo

At least 80 people have been killed outside of Oslo at a youth camp supporting the governing party. According to the BBC, the suspect appears to be a 32-year-old who is possibly a neo-Nazi.
The Beeb has an article on Norway’s far right here.

At the moment, I don’t know if there IS a connection between the two events. So I am not going to speculate on that yet.

UPDATE (24/07/2011): The suspect, Anders Behring Breivek, has been charged with terrorism. It appears that he is a Christian fundamentalist, and published an utterly sick 1500-page manifesto. Interestingly enough, almost none of the news sites I’ve seen refer to him as a “Christian terrorist” – which is exactly what he is.
