NORWAY AGAIN: Gunman Went on Rampage Leaving About 80 people Dead in a Norwegian Youth Camp

Rescue Operators Bringing Dead and Wounded Victims to the Shore

Our hearts goes to Norway today. Don't Forget they were still recovering from a massive bombing in the heart of its power center now a shooting at the ruling party's youth camp outside the capital.

Here's the Story, from CNN

Survivor: Gunman screams ‘we all shall die’ during shooting spree
A young man who survived a gunman’s two-hour rampage on Norway’s Utoya Island says he is alive because he played dead, grabbing on to bodies around him, an account that came as authorities on Saturday raised the death toll from the attack a day earlier to 84.
Adrian Pracon’s account provided the clearest detail to date of Friday’s shooting attack at the ruling Labour Party’s youth camp that police said left at least 84 dead people. The attack came shortly after an explosion in the Norwegian capital of Olso that killed seven people, raising the combined death toll in both attacks to 91.
“Me and two others were laying down and survived because of the bodies we could hang on to and pretend that we are dead,” Pracon told CNN early Saturday by telephone from his hospital room.
“I could feel his breath,” said 21-year-old Pracon. “I could hear his boots.”
Norwegian television and newspaper reports have identified the suspect in the attacks as 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik.
Police have not released the identity of the man, telling reporters Saturday they detained a 32-year-old Norwegian man who is being questioned in both the Olso bombing and the shooting attack at the youth camp on Utoya Island, about 20 miles from the Norwegian capital. Police spokesman Are Frykholm told CNN Saturday that authorities are investigating further, based on information provided by the man in custody.
