I don't know what to say

It's just that horrible. There will be no knitting content here today, I think I'm in too much shock. I guess most of you have heard, but yesterday a car blew up outside the government building in Oslo, Norway. Killing at least 7, injuring lots more. Police and rescuers are still searching the building. And a short while after the bomb went off, a presumably lone nut-case entered a youth camp on the small island on Utøya, outside of Oslo, and killed at least 85 youths in cold blood. The kids were there at a political youth camp with the socialist party, and the crazy guy entered by being dressed as a police. He shot and killed 85 innocent kids, and injured lots more. We're still in shock here, I can't even imagine how the people of Norway must feel.

The police has the shooter in custody, and they're trying to find out motive, and whether or not he was alone. Apparently he was a sort of right-wing nut, but nothing much has been confirmed about him otherwise. He has admitted to the crimes, so he'll definitely be going away for a long time. 

My heart goes out to all the poor kids and their families today, we can't tell all of you how much we're grieveing with you. I've been crying in front of the TV all day, I can't even imagine how bad it must be in Oslo today. All the people of Norway are in our thoughts today.
