Norway rocked by deadly attacks in Oslo and on Utoya Island

As many as 17 people have been killed in two separate attacks in Norway, shocking the generally peaceful Scandinavian country.

A bomb blast exploded near a government building housing the prime minister's office in Oslo, killing seven people and injuring at least 15. The bomb damaged nearby ministries, and the oil ministry was set on fire. In a second incident, a gunman disguised as a police officer opened fire on a of the ruling Labour party on Utoya island, killing nine or 10 people.
