OSLO, Norway (AP) — Norwegians have begun a solemn day of memorials for victims of last week’s bomb and shooting massacre, and the first funerals for the 76 victims are to be held.
“Today it is one week since Norway was hit by evil,” Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said Friday at a memorial service in the “People’s House” assembly hall.
“We have to live with July 22, but together we will make it,” he said from a stage adorned with red roses, the symbol of his governing Labor Party.
Another memorial service was being held at an Oslo mosque. The confessed attacker was a vehement anti-Muslim.
