Death toll after Oslo bombing.

MORE than 25 people were feared dead last night after a bomb ripped open buildings in the heart of Norway's government and a man dressed as a police officer opened fire at an island youth camp connected to the ruling party.

At least seven people were killed in the blast in Oslo. A witness said more than 20 teenagers died in the camp shootings on the island of Utoya, the peaceful nation's worst violence since the Second World War.

Police did not immediately confirm the account, but Acting Police Chief Sveinung Sponheim said a suspect in the shooting had been arrested who was linked to the bombing in Oslo.
