Oslo pays homage to Breivik’s victims

Published on 26 July 2011 at 10:05


“Tonight, the streets are filled with love,” says the Norwegian daily Aftenposten, on the day following the huge homage ceremony held for the 76 victims (the figure has been revised downward), in which 150,000 people gathered, a rose in hand, in Oslo. Aftenposten devotes its front page to Prince Haakon's speech. “Those who were in the government district and on Utøya Island were the targets of terror. But we have all been touched by it,” said the heir to the Norwegian throne. A few hours earlier, the alleged killer appeared in court and admitted having placed a bomb near government headquarters on July 22, before opening fire on Labour Party youth on Utøya Island. He could be tried for crimes against humanity.
