Norway is in deep shock and mourning following the twin terror attacks that have killed around 76 people. Thousands of people carried red or white roses rallied to pay their tribute to the victims of the attack that took place on July 22.
The death count from the attacks has been revised to 76, from Sunday's count of 93, according to Wall Street Journal.
With some bodies accidentally double-counted in the confused hours after the shooting rampage, police told WSJ that 68 people had died in Friday's shootings on the lake island of Utoya, down from the earlier figure of 86. Eight people, not seven, had died in the bombing in the heart of Oslo beforehand, the police told WSJ.
The twin attacks involved a shooting spree at the Utoeya Island and a car bomb in Oslo by Anders Behring Breivik who saw his attack as "atrocious, but necessary" to defeat liberal immigration policies and the spread of Islam," Reuters reported.
Breivik dressed as a policeman went on a 90-minute shooting rampage at a summer camp in Utoeya killing Labour supporters.
Breivik, the 32-year-old Norwegian right-wing fanatic responsible for both the bombing and the youth camp shooting rampage in Oslo, Norway on Friday, has admitted carrying out the attacks.
According to a judge, the Norway gunman confessed to both the bombing and shooting. He justified his dreaded acts saying that it was "necessary" to take such actions to stop the "colonization" of the country by Muslims.
Breivik said the labor party must take responsibility for "driving its ideological line and keeps deconstructing Norwegian culture and mass importing Muslims". It is this "treason" for which he targeted the Labor Party, Breivik said.
Breivik could be charged with crimes against humanity, which carry a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, Norwegian police prosecutor Sturla Henreiksboe told WSJ.
And, while the world has been shocked by the act, Norway continues to mourn its victims. Take a glimpse of the rose tribute to the victims:
