Norway's terror commission visits bomb site

Norway's terror commission visits bomb site

A panel investigating Norway's response to the July 22 attacks that killed 77 people has toured government offices in Oslo that were ravaged by a car bomb.
Commission head Alexandra Bech Gjoerv told reporters Thursday she was deeply moved by the visit to the government district, where eight people were killed by the explosion.
The block in central Oslo has been sealed off since the blast, with debris still being cleared from area. It remains unclear whether some of the most badly damaged buildings need to be torn down.
Anders Behring Breivik, an anti-Muslim extremist, has confessed that he detonated the car bomb and later shot and killed 69 people at an island youth camp outside Oslo.
