OSLO - A gunman dressed in police uniform opened fire at a youth camp of Norway's ruling political party on Friday, killing at least 80 people, hours after a bomb killed seven in the government district in the capital Oslo.


Police seized the gunman and later found undetonated explosives on the island, a pine-clad strip of land about 500 meters long, to the northwest of Oslo.
