Many are still in shock at the worst attack since World War Two.

Anders Behring Breivik set off a bomb in Oslo's government district, killing eight people.

Then he drove to a small island where a youth camp was held, and started shooting at teenagers, killing 68.

Three to five people are still unaccounted for, and the police are using a special submarine to look for the bodies.
