OSLO - Norwegian police said on Saturday a gunman, believed to be a fundamentalist Christian, killed at least 84 people at a youth camp on Utoeya island.

"As of now we have 84 dead at Utoeya," deputy police chief Roger Andresen told a news conference. "In Oslo, with the explosion and the impact it had, we are not yet sure if that number is final."

"At Utoeya, the water is still being searched for more victims," he said.

He declined to comment on the possible motive for the killings, but said: "We have no more information than ... what has been found on (his) own websites, which is that is goes towards the right (wing) and that it is, so to speak, Christian fundamentalist."
