Norway's Twin Attacks, July 22, 2011

Norwegian police say a gunman shot and killed at least 68 youths at a summer camp on Utøya island, in the normally peaceful Nordic nation, hours after a bomb blast killed seven people in the capital, Oslo. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg calls the assaults - the worst in Norway since World War II - "a national tragedy. It is a nightmare."
