Jesus Christ, I knew someone had shot at people, but didn't realise the extent of it until this morning. Holy shitAt least 84 people died when a gunman opened fire at an island youth camp in Norway, hours after a deadly bombing in the capital, Oslo, police say.
Police have charged a 32-year-old Norwegian man over both attacks.
The man dressed as a police officer was arrested on tiny Utoeya island after an hour-long shooting spree. The search for other possible victims continues.
The Oslo bombing killed at least seven. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said the attacks were "like a nightmare".
Mr Stoltenberg, whose offices were among those badly hit by the blast, described the attacks as a national tragedy.
"Never since the Second World War has our country been hit by a crime on this scale," he told a news conference in Oslo.
He added that he was due to have been on Utoeya - "a youth paradise turned into a hell" - a few hours after the attack took place. Many others were injured there as well as those who died.

At the scene
BBC News, near Utoeya
This whole area remains sealed off by the police. In a hotel a few hundreds yards away families and survivors are being reunited.
A search is going on not just on the island itself, but also in the waters around it because a lot of people tried to escape by jumping in the water and trying to swim away. Even as they did that, eyewitnesses say, the gunmen opened fire on them.
The chatter now is that it took the police an hour, if not an hour and a half, to actually get to the island. Of course that gave the gunman so much time to kill so many people. We know he was armed with some kind of automatic weapon.
It's obviously quite an isolated area - it took us about an hour to get from Oslo to here. Also crucially, the police were throwing all their resources at the huge bomb attack which had just taken place in the centre of Oslo.
But still, the question will be asked: Were there not police nearer to this area who could have moved in much more quickly?
In pictures: Attacks shock Norway
Mr Stoltenberg said civil servants were among the dead in Oslo and he knew some of those killed. "Beyond that I cannot give further details while the police carry out their investigation."
He said it was too early too comment on a possible motive for the attacks. No group has said it carried them out.
The suspect is reported by local media to have had links with right-wing extremists. He has been named as Anders Behring Breivik. Police searched his Oslo apartment overnight.
The BBC's Richard Galpin, near the island, says that Norway has had problems with neo-Nazi groups in the past but the assumption was that such groups had been largely eliminated and did not pose a significant threat.
Police say they are investigating whether the attacks were the work of one man or whether he had help.
"At Utoeya, the water is still being searched for more victims," deputy police chief Roger Andresen told reporters.
"We have no more information than... what has been found on [his] own websites, which is that it goes towards the right and that it is, so to speak, Christian fundamentalist."
