OSLO - A gunman killed nine or 10 people in a shooting at a meeting in Norway of the youth wing of the ruling Labor Party on Friday, police said.

"The number is 10, possibly nine," Deputy Oslo Police Chief Sveining Sponheim told reporters when asked about the preliminary toll in a shooting on Utoeya Island, north west of Oslo.

"That's what we know so far," he said. He said a man had been arrested and was being questioned by Oslo police, who believe he also has knowledge of a bomb blast in Oslo that killed seven people.
