OSLO - A witness said he saw at least 20 bodies after a shooting at a youth camp of the Norwegian Labor party on Friday. Police declined comment on the toll and there was no independent confirmation.

"I've seen it with my own eyes, at least 20 dead people lying in the water", Andre Skeie, 26, told Reuters by telephone. He said he had gone to the island of Utoeya on his boat to help people evacuate the island after a gunman opened fire there.

Police declined comment on the number of casualties at the youth camp at Utoeya, northwest of Oslo.
