Well Prapor.

I believe Redleg answered your question there.

At the moment it seems like it was the work of either 1 person, or alternatively a small group, and that it was most likely an act of political terrorism rather than religious.

New press conference now where they confirm that they also have found several undetonated bombs on the island where the shooting took place.
They are also searching through the island now and it seems like they have found more killed then the 10 confirmed until now, so the tragedy is getting worse....
The arrested man is 32 years old and a Norwegian (ethnic) citizen, they can not confirm if he was alone or not yet.

But it seems like this is well planned attack, so it is very likely that he wasn't alone.

gazeta.ru says that Norwegian police says 10 dead at the camps, but some witnesses claim they have seen 20, and one even 30 bodies...

What a terrible and unwarranted act by any standard whatsoever. Absolutely perverse and criminal. Reportedly claimed by Jihadist group; and for WHAT? for Danish cartoons as claimed? If so, unbelievably disgusting.

On some Russian forums there are claims that these attacks are the work of Israeli Mossad, because Norway was (maybe still is?) going to recognize a Palestinian state...

Yes that is correct.
The official number is still 10, but at the press conference they said that they expected this numer to rise when they have searched through the island, so the number may be as high as 20-30.

There are some unconfirmed reports that Al-qaida has taken responsibility for the attacks, but nothing official on that yet and that doesn't match the person who has been arrested now, a 32 years old ethnic Norwegian.

The police has confirmed 10 casualties on the island of the youth camp, but there are several persons missing, and they fear that the number of casualties will increase.
As there is discovered unexploded ordnance on the island, the fine-search has been slowed down a bit.
The fact that several of the kids jumped into the water in order to swim to safety, or simply to avoid being shot, complicates the search a great deal.
Victims who managed to swim to safety on the shore has told the media that they swam while the bullets hailed around them in the water.

The tradegy is hard to fathom, but as the youngest kids was around 13-14 years of age gives you an idea..

Don't go by ethno/race, mate. Don't know of Norway, but over here, the Wahabis in Caucasus specifically try to recruit Slavic converts, because it is harder for police to pick them out.

I posted on that here: http://www.military-quotes.com/forum...at-t91141.html

Kids in ages ranging from 13 to about 22 years I believe.

Some were shot, and found on the island during the first sweep, but a number may have been shot in the water, or drowned during the attempt to swim to the mainland.

Some may even be hiding still, in fear of anyone wearing a police uniform, or wounded and unconcious in the bushes.
