Oslo & Utøya Terrorist Attacks 2011

On 22nd July 2011 Norway was hit by a major anti-Islamic terrorist attack, by one of its own people. Firstly a car bomb targeting the government quarter of Oslo city centre was set off, killing 8 people. In the aftermath, 69 people were shot dead on the island of Utøya, the majority of whom were teenagers attending a youth camp of the Norwegian Labour Party.

The horrific events united the Norwegian nation against racism and many memorial events were held all over the country. We will always remember.
