    Another incident appears to be targeting the PM. It was just posted 33 minutes ago on twitter. First the building his office was in is bombed then this....ETA: responding tweets now state the PM was not at the conference the shooting took place at. Weird though to have so much govt targeted violence in one day in Norway. IMO.

    Man disguised as a police officer began shooting where prime minister Jens Stoltenberg was attending party conference at Utoya

    This is the last tweet I will post on the shooting until there is a connection made to the bombing.....weird coincidence though if it's not related.

    Labour youth member tweets: "We are sitting by the beach. A man is shooting clothed inpolice uniform. Help us! " #oslohttp://bit.ly/quLKIl

    Does seem very odd for 2 incidents to happen on the same day if there not linked.

    Earlier responding tweets that I can't find now say the PM was scheduled to appear at the conference but had not yet done so. FWIW.

    The blast comes as Norway grapples with a homegrown terror plot linked to Al Qaeda. Two suspects are in jail awaiting charges.
    Last week, a Norwegian prosecutor filed terror charges against an Iraqi-born cleric for threatening Norwegian politicians with death if he is deported from the Scandinavian country. The indictment centered on statements that Mullah Krekar -- the founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam -- made to various news media, including American network NBC.
    Terrorism has also been a concern in neighboring Denmark since an uproar over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad six years ago. Danish authorities say they have foiled several terror plots linked to the 2005 newspaper cartoons that triggered protests in Muslim countries. Last month, a Danish appeals court on Wednesday sentenced a Somali man to 10 years in prison for breaking into the home of the cartoonist.

    This is scary to me since the US just recently issued the raised alert here this week.

    In 2003, an audiotape by Ayman Zawahiri, who succeeded Osama bin Laden as leader of Al Qaeda after his death in May, urged militants to attack the U.S., Britain, Australia and Norway.

    Many Norwegians were puzzled at the inclusion of their country on the list; explanations centered on Norway's participation in the war in Afghanistan.

    Six years ago, many Muslims around the world and at home were angered when a Norwegian newspaper published cartoons from Denmark that protesters said insulted the prophet Muhammad.

    Oslo is also a contributor to the aerial campaign over Libya

    I am so shocked to see the city that born and raised me being under attack.

    But more...

    the shooting at Ut°ya is worse.

    A fake police man comes to a political youth camp and starts shooting. Kids jump in the water to swim away from the horrow.

    Ut°ya is a small island, 700 teens/youth were there today. Jumping in the ocean is the only option...

    The horrow these kids must have felt. I am crying when I think about my Norwegian sisters and brothers hurt today.

    And I just wanna say:

    I wish Norway would stop engaging in military operations all over the world.

    We are a very peaceful nation and people...

    I am very surprised to read today that Norway is such a terrorist target.

    ETA: sending my prayers to the people of Norway.

    From the front page.

    Police have good reason to think the deadly explosion in central Oslo is linked to the shooting on an island where a political youth camp was being held, NRK reports. LIVE BLOG
