Norway government employees missing

2011-07-26 11:00

Oslo - Norway's justice minister says employees from his department are still missing after an attack on government headquarters in Oslo and a shooting spree at a nearby island.

Anders Behring Breivik has confessed to last week's bombing in the capital and a rampage on a Labour Party retreat for young people. In all, 76 people were killed in the twin attacks that have stunned peaceful Norway.

Justice Minister Knut Storberget said on Tuesday that the ministry "has people who are missing, we have people who are very hard hit by this and we are without offices".

He did not specify if the people were dead. Police have said there are still people missing at both scenes. The names of victims have not yet been released.

    They should just hand Anders Behring Breivik to the families of the victims. Mob justice is justifiable here. Since the maximum sentence in Norway is 21 years. If he wants to rid Europe of Muslims than why did he target his fellow country men?

      @civil_rights - Man, have you got a misnomer as a pseudonym

      Grunk when Anders Behring Breivik took the lives of 76 innocent human beings, he lost all his civil rights. He can not be considered as a human being because his acts are inhumane. Not even animals go on a killing spree. Anders Behring Breivik had no rational motive for his actions. Grunk if your family members were slain in such a similar man by Anders Behring Breivik, would you have a tea party with Breivik and discuss matters of how he deserves Civil rights?

      Hi Civil rights, and pray why is the max sentence 21 years?? is that not perhaps what Anders Behring Breivik is fighting for. He was targeting the Labour party for their brainless policies and slap on the hand attitude towards crime, not shooting willy nilly at innocent civilians. I regard him as freedom fighter and should be treated as a political prisoner

      Mob justice is in the same league as Breivik's actions. Civil rights are inviolate.. "An eye for an eye" stoops to his level, doesn't solve anything and would be a horrifying concept to the victim's families. And why would anybody go to the other extreme of having a tea-party with a psychopath? Your comments don't make sense in the framework of constructive debate

    Here we have a classic case of whether this man can call on his civil rights???? Does a killer have rights? Does a rapist have rights? In China they execute people guilty of corruption!!

      THEN WE WON'T HAVE A GOVERMENT

      @ExRecce In China they execute people guilty of corruption!! Imagine that in SA? There'd be a monumental queue at the gallows.

    Being executed is easier than living in prison where everyone wants to teach you a lesson every day, don't you think? Also, don't we still have hope that he will see his wrong ways and then have years to live with that regret and guilt. . .
