OSLO, Norway (AP) -- Police say at least 80 people were killed in a shooting spree at the youth camp of Norway's Labor Party.
Police director Oystein Maeland told reporters early Saturday they had discovered many more victims after initially reporting the death toll at 10.
Maeland couldn't say how many people were injured in the shooting.
Hundreds of youth were attending the summer camp organized by the youth wing of Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's Labor Party on the island of Utoya.
Police also say seven people were killed in an explosion in Oslo.
